"The Basil and Josephine Stories" by F. Scott Fitzgerald - A Review

The Basil and Josephine StoriesThe Basil and Josephine Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This collection of short stories (featuring two protagonists—Basil and Josephine) contains some of F. Scott's best writing. While the stories are inconsistent, they brilliantly capture the early years of the 1900s and of (presumably) F. Scott's life. It's a shame he never finished this work and was unable to combine the stories into a single narrative, but for any fan of Fitzgerald it's a definite "must" to read. You will be re-reading certain sentences over and over again and marveling at their beauty.
