American novelist Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896-1940) penned full length books as well as short stories and poems, some of his best known work including 'The Great Gatsby', 'The Beautiful and Damned', 'Tender is the Night' and 'This Side of Paradise.'

A friend of fellow author, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald enjoyed his most notable success during the roaring '20s - indeed, he published 'The Great Gatsby' in 1925.

He mingled with many other well known writers throughout his lifetime and enjoyed frequenting the French Riviera.
