F. Scott Fitzgerald's Bio
Zelda was a very spoiled but free-spirited young woman. She and Fitzgerald lived a very fancy lifestyle in the Roaring Twenties, traveling the globe and socializing with the very wealthy. He wrote two more famous books during that time: The Beautiful and the Damned and his best-known novel The Great Gatsby. Their extravagant lifestyle led to Zelda's mental breakdown and Fitzgerald's alcoholism. They only had one child, Scottie. They fell in to debt. In the late 1930s, Fitzgerald tried writing movies for Hollywood. When he was 44, he had a heart attack and died in 1940. He didn't get recognition for his writing until later on after his death.
