    By

    This carefully crafted ebook: “Flappers and Philosophers - The Original 1920 Edition” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

    Flappers and Philosophers is the first collection of short stories written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The first edition of this work was published in 1920 by Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York.

    The stories involve characters typical of the 1920s jazz-age generation, the flappers and philosophers of the affluent and heady America lately recovered from World War One. These include careless, happy, liberated and bored youth, society girls and town boys, against the backdrop of jazz music and dance, feminists, intellectuals, odd couplings of people not expected to fall in love, the melding of high and low culture and old and new wealth.

    It includes eight stories:

    "The Offshore Pirate"

    "The Ice Palace"

    "Head and Shoulders"

    "The Cut-Glass Bowl"

    "Bernice Bobs Her Hair"

    "Benediction"

    "Dalyrimple Goes Wrong"

    "The Four Fists"

    Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896 – 1940) was an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
