Simon & Schuster to Publish a New F. Scott Fitzgerald Book

By Maryann Yin Comment

F. Scott Fitzgerald 200 (GalleyCat)Scribner, a Simon & Schuster imprint, announced plans to publish a new short story collection by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald (pictured, via) submitted a number of these pieces to major magazines, but they were never published.

TIME reports that Anne Margaret Daniel, a Fitzgerald scholar, is editing this project. The release date for this book has been scheduled for April 11, 2017.

Here’s more from USA Today: “The collection’s publication comes after the 2015 discovery and publication of Fitzgerald’s short story ‘Temperature’ at Princeton University, his alma mater. The story of a once-famous novelist trying — mostly without success — to reinvent himself as a Hollywood screenwriter was drawn heavily from his own life. The title I’d Die For You refers to Fitzgerald’s time in North Carolina, where the novelist was drinking himself to death in the mid-’30s as his wife Zelda languished in an Asheville mental hospital. He was gone by 1940, when he died of a heart attack at age 44.” (via The Sydney Morning Herald)
