The Last Tycoon Summary

The Last Tycoon by F. Scott Fitzgerald

A mesmerising and lavish story of Hollywood's Golden Age from the author of The Great Gatsby.

1930s Hollywood. The depression has receded, the studios are booming, and the glitz and glamour are bewitching. But for Cecilia Brady, this is just life. That is, until she meets Monroe Stahr...

Stahr is at the centre of it all. A genius production chief in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Cecilia is mesmerised. But Stahr's attentions are caught elsewhere - in the arms of a mysterious woman - and Cecilia watches as a passionate but doomed love affair unfolds.

Little by little, Stahr loses his grasp on this fickle world. Fighting with his writers and declaring war on the Union bosses, he is saved from tragedy only by Fitzgerald's own death.

Although THE LAST TYCOON will forever remain unfinished, it is a work of unrivalled potential, exposing a Hollywood we no longer know. One of stars in ascension, and the great picture men in free fall.

The Last Tycoon Reviews

It would have been Fitzgerald's best novel . . . Even in this truncated form it not only makes absorbing reading; it is the best piece of creative writing that we have about one phase of American life - Hollywood and the movies * New York Times *
Wonderful . . . a novel about Hollywood, written from the inside * Sunday Times *
His talent was as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a butterfly's wings * Ernest Hemingway *

About F. Scott Fitzgerald

Born in 1896, Fitzgerald was considered a member of the 'Lost Generation', along with Steinbeck, T.S. Eliot and Waldo Peirce. His novels epitomize the Jazz Age - a term he coined himself - and The Great Gatsby is often considered to be 'the great American novel'. In 1937, Fitzgerald moved to Hollywood to try and write himself out of debt - while there he worked on now-forgotten movies such as A Yank at Oxford. It is this insider knowledge that Fitzgerald brings to his final novel THE LAST TYCOON.
