What REAL fans
call the writer. (Frances) Scott Fitzgerald would certainly have not gone around calling himself F. Scott. He was a writer who had it all: class, charm, genius and alcohol dependence. He loved
the bottle, but by god, that's no crime. Scott Fitzgerald helped Hemingway get published with
Charles Scribner and Sons, a fact people often overlook. In return, Hemingway treated him like
a douche. Scott Fitzgerald is the original rock star writer, making as much as 3,000 dollars for a short story to the Saturday Evening Post (This is in the twenties mind you, so imagine the equivalence in today's economy). He wrote hard, drank harder, and died
tragically at forty four in Hollywood.
