BEAUTIFUL FOOLS NOW AVAILABLE IN BOOKSTORES AND ONLINE!
Beautiful Fools is a vivid and revealing look at two charismatic, self-destructive people, and the love that sustained and ruined them. It’s a real feat of historical imagination and novelistic empathy.
—Tom Perrotta, author of Election and Little Children
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.
