F.S. Fitzgerald was an American writer, whose works illustrate the Jazz Age. The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald's third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. Being acclaimed by generations of readers, the story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan remains one of the most famous Fitzgerald's works. It is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s. All the Sad Young Men is a wonderful short-story collection. It contains two of the most famous tales: the beautifully elegiac "The Rich Boy" and "Winter Dreams", dealing with wealthy protagonists as they come to terms with lost love and "Absolution", a boy's confession to a priest.
