This month, we will be reading two stories from I’d Die for You and other lost stories from F. Scott Fitzgerald.
This collection was published in 2017 and features a collection of the last remaining unpublished and uncollected short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald edited by Anne Margaret Daniel. Fitzgerald did not design the stories in I’d Die For You as a collection. Most were submitted individually to major magazines during the 1930s and accepted for publication during Fitzgerald’s lifetime, but were never printed. Some were written as movie scenarios and sent to studios or producers, but not filmed. Others are stories that could not be sold because their subject matter or style departed from what editors expected of Fitzgerald. They date from the earliest days of Fitzgerald’s career to the last. They come from various sources, from libraries to private collections, including those of Fitzgerald’s family.
We will read “IOU” and the title story “I’d Die for You” along with the introduction to the collection to gain a better understanding of the context surrounding the state of mind and life circumstances Fitzgerald was in at the time of writing.
