As the release date inches closer for the highly anticipated adaptation of that Mona Lisa of American literature The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and and Carry Mulligan, I can tell we'll be hearing a lot about the Fitzgeralds this year. The world that F Scott. Fitzgerald brought to the page was one contradictory to our current times, but perhaps because of our times there is a shred of vicarity to the whole thing. Now, from F. Scott and his wife Zelda, like an upper-crust version Bonnie & Clyde, comes the reprint of a story F. Scott once wrote for Motor magazine called The Cruise of the Rolling Junk. In an early series of journalistic pieces for Motor magazine, F. Scott Fitzgerald described a journey he took with his wife Zelda from Connecticut to Alabama in a clapped out automobile which he called the "Rolling Junk." It is a piece of writing whose style, in free-ranging alternation of fact and fiction, has been compared to Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat. This book collects together the articles as one text, illustrated with the original illustrations of Fitzgerald, Zelda, and the "Junk." You can purchase the book here.
