Last of the Belles

    By

    Inspired by Fitzgerald's own courtship of his future wife Zelda, `The Last of the Belles' centres on the Southern beauty Ailie Calhoun from Tarleton, Georgia, who finds herself the object of attention of all the officers at a nearby army base, including the narrator, Andy. A wistful and melancholy exploration of unfulfilled dreams and lost youth, the story is considered one of Fitzgerald's finest pieces of short fiction. This volume also includes other acclaimed stories - such as `Jacob's Ladder', `The Swimmers' and `The Bridal Party' - written by Fitzgerald between 1927 and 1931, during the prolonged period in which he was struggling to compose Tender Is the Night.
