Although one of the biggest, literary stars of the 20th century, F. Scott Fitzgerald might be just as well remembered for his love of drinking as he is for his writing. On Booze is a clever collection of the prolific author’s musings on alcohol — a subject that appears in almost every one of his stories. Within these pages, you’ll find previously unpublished excerpts from Fitzgerald’s notebooks and letters, as well as a number of essays originally written for Esquire magazine, including “The Crack-Up,” “Passing It Together” and “Handle With Care.” Together, these snippets paint a picture of the Roaring Twenties as Fitzgerald experienced it, from the drunken soirees to the morning hangovers. A must-read for classic lit fans and cocktail lovers alike.
