I’ve been working on “Collected Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald” for over a year now, and I’m happy to have finished it! While Fitzgerald’s most popular work today is probably “The Great Gatsby,” he was a really popular short story writer in the 20’s and 30’s, and this collection is truly amazing.
The nice thing about taking on a collection of short stories is that you’re not committed to finishing a full-blown novel in a timely fashion; you can just read one short story at a time, as slowly as you need to go, which is perfect when you don’t have a lot of free time.
Some of my favorite short stories in this collection were “The Offshore Pirate,” “Bernice Bobs Her Hair,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” and “Jemina the Mountain Girl,” among all of the other stories. I can’t wait to read this collection over and over again, because I can tell it’s the type of book that you get more out of every time you read it.
If you’re looking for a good read, definitely check this one out.
