Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was born in September 24, 1896 and died in December 21, 1940. He was an American fiction writer, whose works helped to illustrate the ostentation and excess of the Jazz Age. While he reached popular success, fame, and fortune in his lifetime, he did not receive much critical acclaim until after his death. He was Perhaps the most notable member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s. Fitzgerald is now widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
