Zelda Fitzgerald seems selfish, outlandish, and over-the-top. But her life is just so interesting.
Zelda, by Nancy Milford, is a portrait of Zelda Fitzgerald, best known for being married to Scott Fitzgerald. She came of age in the South and lived a life of the most excessive twenties flapper. She partied and charmed. This book deals with her tumultous relationship with F. Scott Fitzgerald and her destructive mental illness.
As much as I dislike the character portrayed to me, her life is very interesting.
The couple lived in a world of privilege in a very interesting time during history and mingled with many of the other important writers/artists/figures of the time.
The book also has some black and white pictures of Zelda (sometimes with Scott) throughout her life.
