He was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a generation.

Published a year after The Great Gatsby, this short-story collection showcases many of the celebrated novel's themes, as well as its unique writing style. Two of the most famous tales, the beautifully elegiac 'The Rich Boy' and 'Winter Dreams', deal with wealthy protagonists - the old-money Anson Hunter and the self-made man Dexter Green - as they come to terms with lost love; while 'Absolution', in which a boy confesses to a priest, was initially written as a background piece to The Great Gatsby.

Also containing 'The Baby Party', 'Rags Martin-Jones and the Pr-nce of W-les', 'The Adjuster', 'Hot and Cold Blood', 'The Sensible Thing' and 'Gretchen's Forty Winks' - all of which describe in various ways the 1920s society that Fitzgerald himself inhabited - All the Sad Young Men is a masterpiece of twentieth-century American fiction.
