BEAUTIFUL FOOLS NOW AVAILABLE IN BOOKSTORES AND ONLINE!
“This is historical fiction at its best, imaginatively filling the gaps and bringing us intimately into a portrait of marriage.” –Times Literary Supplement
An unforgettable novel that imagines the missing, final chapter in the tragic romance of one of America’s great literary couples.
Beautiful Fools is the story of Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald’s last trip together to save their passionate but ill-fated marriage. Fighting the demons of alcoholism, mental illness, and failed artistic ambition, but remaining intensely loyal to one another, Zelda and Scott are a heartbreaking testament to the limitlessness of hope.
A love story for the most unyielding of romantics.
