The Last Tycoon

Written by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Part of the Collins Classics Series

The Last Tycoon Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. `They were smiling at each other as if this was the beginning of the world.' The lights of Hollywood do little to distract Cecelia as she watches Monroe Stahr, wunderkind studio executive and object of her desire, descend into a reckless and ardent love affair with an auspicious starlet - an affair that threatens to destroy his reign as the Silver Screen's golden boy. In this tragic tale Fitzgerald exposes the corruption, sex and towering ambition at the dark heart of 1930s Hollywood. Unfinished at the time of his death, F. Scott Fitzgerald bids his own poignant farewell to the themes that inspired `The Great Gatsby', `Tender is the Night' and `The Beautiful and Damned'.

The Last Tycoon Press Reviews

'Wonderful ... a novel about Hollywood, written from the inside' Helen Dunmore, Sunday Times `It would have been Fitzgerald's best novel . . . absorbing reading' New York Times
