Notes

First edition, first printing. A collection of Fitzgerald's stories about Pat Hobby, a Hollywood writer "who was hot stuff when the movies were dumb", published in Esquire magazine between January 1940 and May 1941. Fitzgerald had himself worked, frustratingly, as a Hollywood screenwriter, and these experiences influenced the Pat Hobby stories as well as his unfinished masterpiece The Love of the Last Tycoon.
