Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was an American novelist, essayist, screenwriter, and short-story writer. He was best known for his novels depicting the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age—a term which he coined. During his lifetime, he published four novels, four collections of short stories, and 164 short stories. Although he temporarily achieved popular success and fortune in the 1920s, Fitzgerald only received wide critical and popular acclaim after his death. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
As an author of the Jazz Age, Fitzgerald’s novels depict the glamour of the Roaring 20′s. Moreover, his writing impacted modernist fiction and remains widely recognized for its focus on wealth, society, and the American Dream.
