"When F. Scott Fitzgerald was fourteen and living in the Crocus Hill neighborhood of St. Paul, he began keeping a short diary of his exploits among his friends, friendly rivals, and crushes. He gave the journal a title page--'Thoughtbook of Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald of St. Paul Minn. U.S.A.'--and kept it securely locked in a box under his bed. Here, for the first time, is a complete transcription of this charming, twenty-seven-page diary highlighting Fitzgerald's escapades among the children of some of St. Paul's most influential families--models for the families described in The Great Gatsby"--Page 4 of cover.
