Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was born on September 24, 1896. He was an author, satirist, scriptwriter, and fiction writer from the United States. Fitzgerald was most recognized for his books, which depicted the quirkiness and extravagance of the Roaring Twenties. He authored four books, four collections of stories, and 164 short stories throughout his life. Fitzgerald enjoyed temporary fame and money in the 1920s. He acquired widespread critical and popular recognition after his death. He is one of the twentieth century’s best American authors.
Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota but reared in New York. He joined Princeton University, but quit in 1917 to enlist in The army due to a broken love and passion for literature. He fell madly in love with wealthy lady Zelda Sayre while posted in Alabama. Zelda consented to marry Fitzgerald after he authored the best-selling This Side of Paradise in 1920 despite originally rejecting him owing to his financial circumstances.
Ernest Hemingway was his biggest inspiration as a writer. His second novel, The Beautiful and Damned published in 1922, catapulted him into the upper class of New York City.
