News that a collection of previously unpublished stories by the author F Scott Fitzgerald will be released next year has got fans excited. Why haven’t they been published before, and what are they like?
F Scott Fitzgerald’s stories of romance and personal tragedy in 1920s America have led him to be regarded as one of the greatest authors of the 20th Century. But the man behind The Great Gatsby was less revered in his lifetime and in later years struggled to get into print.
Some of his short stories were deemed too controversial for publication and several of these are included in an upcoming book, I’d Die For You and Other Lost Stories. Others in the collection were accepted by magazines but never printed, its publisher Scribner says.
