Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cecilia Brady, the daughter of a great motion-picture producer, reminisces about events that began five years earlier when she was an undergraduate at Bennington College, starting with a flight home to Hollywood on a plane whose other passengers included Wylie White, a script writer down on his luck, Manny Schwartz, once an influential producer, and Monroe Stahr, another producer and partner of Cecilia's father, Pat Brady. Cecilia is attracted to Stahr, and he turns to her at the very time that he has a falling out with her father. Each of the partners conceives the idea of murdering the other. On the way to New York to establish an alibi, Stahr repents and decides to revoke his orders that will result in Brady's death, but his plane crashes before he can carry out his new plan and Cecilia loses both her father and the man she loves. Even in its incomplete form, The Love of The Last Tycoon: A Western has achieved a reputation as the best Hollywood novel. When F. Scott Fitzgerald died in 1940 he had written seventeen of thirty projected episodes. In 1941 the "unfinished novel" was published in a text for general readers by Edmund Wilson under the title The Last Tycoon. For more than fifty years this edition has been the only one available. This critical edition of The Love of the Last Tycoon utilizes Fitzgerald's manuscript drafts, revised typescripts, and working notes to establish the first authoritative text of the work. This volume includes a detailed history of the gestation, composition, and publication of the novel; full textual apparatus with editorial notes; facsimiles of the drafts; and explanatory notes on topical allusions and historical references for contemporary readers. The reconstruction of Fitzgerald's plan for the thirteen unwritten episodes is particularly useful. F. Scott Fitzgerald's incomplete masterpiece is restored to its 1940 state, and thus made fully accessible for the first time.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: *With a new introduction by bestselling and iconic novelist Haruki Murakami* This edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final unfinished novel is now restored to the original 1941 text, with updates by Fitzgerald scholar James L. W. West III. When F. Scott Fitzgerald died in 1940, he left behind an unfinished draft of this poignant novel, inspired by his own experience working in Hollywood as a screenwriter. Literary critic Edmund Wilson edited Fitzgerald’s notes and material to publish this text of The Last Tycoon in 1941. Now, this edition restores Wilson’s editorial work and includes an introduction from celebrated author Haruki Murakami. Set in Hollywood in the 1930s, The Last Tycoon tells the tragic story of a young film producer named Monroe Stahr. Exploring themes of ambition, power, and corruption, The Last Tycoon depicts Stahr’s struggle to balance his personal life and professional goals with the challenges of running a successful movie studio. Based on the career of real-life producer Irving Thalberg, the head of MGM who was known as Hollywood’s “boy wonder”, The Last Tycoon is a sharply observed and bittersweet exposé of the glittering excess of the Hollywood film industry in its prime.

  • Pages : 99 pages

Download or read book The Last Tycoon written by The Last Tycoon and published by Modernista. This book was released on 2024-03-22 with total page 99 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Hollywood of the 1930s is a constantly spinning Ferris wheel of business, alcohol, and promiscuity – and a complete lack of morals. Film mogul Monroe Stahr's mode outwardly reflects the industry; he is a cynical workaholic who rarely leaves the studio before eleven o'clock. One evening, a mysterious woman stands before him and smiles. It is the beginning of a passionate, yet hopeless, love story. The seduction scene is like something out of one of Stahr's films, and thereafter the story unfolds frame by frame – observed by Cecilia, daughter of Stahr's business partner: a girl who has carefully studied the classic narrative techniques of film. The Last Tycoon takes place during the extravagant heyday of Hollywood. This posthumous novel, never completed, became F. Scott Fitzgerald's final, poignant farewell to the great American dream. F. SCOTT FITZGERALD [1896-1940] was an American author, born in St. Paul, Minnesota. His legendary marriage to Zelda Montgomery, along with their acquaintances with notable figures such as Gertrude Stein and Ernest Hemingway, and their lifestyle in 1920s Paris, has become iconic. A master of the short story genre, it is logical that his most famous novel is also his shortest: The Great Gatsby [1925].
