F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote many famous novels in his time. His first novel was entitled This Side of Paradise. The book is largely autobiographical and tells the story of a young man named Amory Blaine and his adventures from boarding school into his adult life. His second book, The Beautiful and the Damned, depicted his life with his wife Zelda in the form of an extended metaphor. His third and perhaps most famous novel, The Great Gatsby, tells the story of a wealthy man trying to regain his lost love, only to find that nobody can change the past. A movie adaption of this novel is to be released May 2013. His final novel, Tender is the Night, is an homage to the lavish European lifestyle of all of the Lost Generation's authors. Another novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, was published posthumously.
