Publisher Description:
Boyhood pranks in the backyards of Cathedral Hill mansions. Young love at the Minnesota State Fair. Jazz Age parties at the University Club, golfing and dancing at the White Bear Yacht Club. F. Scott Fitzgerald's St. Paul boyhood shaped him--and provided scenery and plots for many of his most successful short stories. Fitzgerald's parents moved many times, but they stayed in the same well-to-do city neighborhood. The young writer continued this pattern after his marriage and early popular success. In this book, informative biographical detail blends with lustrous vignettes from the fiction of one of the greatest writers in twentieth-century America, offering easy access to over 100 places of interest in Minnesota's capital city. The first part of this guidebook tells the story of Fitzgerald in St. Paul by describing his connections to 35 significant places in the city, from his birthplace to the schools, homes, and businesses he knew. Part two identifies 106 places associated with the city's most famous literary son.
