As we celebrate the centennials of F. Scott Fitzgerald's works, this volume offers a timely new approach to the short stories of the Poet Laureate of the Jazz Age. Foregrounding reception, this volume is the first to bring together and reprint all of the magazine texts of the eighteen stories Fitzgerald published in American magazines between 1921 and 1924 - replicating, as closely as possible, the version of Fitzgerald's texts that were available to American audiences. Drawing attention to the nine different magazines where his stories appeared, this collection emphasises the size, scope and power of the American magazine market as the Jazz Age began, and situates Fitzgerald's works within the contexts where they were read by his largest audiences and where his reputation as a social historian was created, appreciated and solidified.
