Notes

First edition, first printing. Tender is the Night was Fitzgerald's fourth novel, appearing some nine years after The Great Gatsby. Structurally complex, topically dangerous and personally challenging, the struggle of its inception was matched perhaps only by the scale of critical disdain. Fitzgerald was so distressed by the antagonism from critical reviews that he agreed to allow later editions to be published with the narrative rearranged chronologically. Only years after his death was the text restored to what is now regarded by many as Fitzgerald's true masterpiece.
