Notes

First edition, first printing, in the first issue dust jacket with the T. S. Eliot review to the front flap. Tender is the Night was Fitzgerald's fourth novel, appearing some nine years after The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald set out to write an important and in many ways revolutionary work of fiction. 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 most quarters that he agreed to allow later editions to be published with the narrative rearranged chronologically. Only years after his death was the text restored and the true brilliance of this work recognised.
