Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald that have never before been published will soon be released under the title I’d Die For You.
The collection is edited by Anne Margaret Daniel and includes the last complete unpublished short stories by Fitzgerald, the iconic American writer of The Great Gatsby.
Most of the stories were submitted individually to major magazines during the 1930s and accepted for publication during Fitzgerald’s lifetime, but were never printed. Some were written as movie scenarios and sent to studios or producers, but not filmed. Others are stories that could not be sold because of their matter controversial content. They date from the earliest days of Fitzgerald’s career to the last and come from various sources, from libraries to private collections, including those of Fitzgerald’s family.
These stories would have been scandalous in the 1930s, depicting young men and women who actually spoke and thought more as young men and women did, without censorship. Rather than allow the changes his editors acquired, Fitzgerald preferred to let his work remain unpublished.
I’d Die For You will be released in April 2017. You can pre-order the book here.
