Zelda: An Illustrated Life
Peter Kurth and Jane Livingston

Zelda Fitzgerald is best known as the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald, the quintessential novelist of the Jazz Age. Much of Zelda's life was appropriated by Scott for his fiction, but her full story, particularly her own artistic ambitions and expressions, is not widely known. With an introduction by her granddaughter, Eleanor Lanahan, and reproductions of 80 of Zelda's best paintings, this is the first book to look beyond the public memory of Zelda Fitzgerald, as an ocean-crossing flapper or a girl struggling with mental illness, and focus extensively on her creative achievement.
