Publisher Description

The Diamond as Big as the Ritz is a playful yet sinister fairy tale, brilliantly fusing F. Scott Fitzgerald's typically lush fantasies about the extremes of wealth with his rather more sombre understanding of what underpins it. Loosely inspired by a summer he spent as a teenager working on a ranch in Montana, this unique novella is Fitzgerald's hallucinatory paean to the American West and all its promises.
