Tonight, we’ll be reading “This Side of Paradise”, the 1920 debut novel from F. Scott Fitzgerald, who later wrote "The Great Gatsby". The book examines the lives and morality of post–World War I youth. The novel famously helped F. Scott Fitzgerald gain Zelda Sayre's hand in marriage; its publication was her condition of acceptance.
