With this first novel the author of The Great Gatsby established himself as an important American novelist and launched a celebrated literary career that was to produce many classics of 20th-century fiction. The semi-autobiographical story of Amory Blaine traces the coming of age of a young man who typifies the lost generation of America's Jazz Age. Fitzgerald's descriptions of his protagonist's pampered childhood, experiences at Princeton, love affairs, and sobering confrontations with the harsh realities of World War I reflect much of the author's own path to maturity. Reviewers took notice of Fitzgerald's elegant and poignant style, and the book opened up financial and social opportunities that allowed him to pursue a career as a novelist.
