Matthew J. Bruccoli (1931–2008) was the Emily Brown Jefferies Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English at the University of South Carolina and the leading authority on the House of Scribner and its authors. He was the editorial director of the Dictionary of Literary Biography and the author or editor of some one hundred books.
Scottie Fitzgerald Smith (1921–1986) was the only child of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. She worked on the staffs of Time and the New Yorker and wrote for the New York Times and the Washington Post. Smith considered The Romantic Egoists her ultimate tribute to her parents.
The late Joan P. Kerr (1921–1996), a founding editor of American Heritage magazine, was a specialist in American art and photography.
"The book is irresistible, a narrative with a strange eloquence"—New York Times Book Review
"The title says it all, yet for lovers of The Great Gatsby, this is the ultimate book. From Scott's baby book to the Fitzgeralds' joint gravestone, this book is a remarkably complete pictorial record: telegrams, book jackets, bar bills, publishing statements, newspaper clippings, paintings by Zelda. . ., and endless photographs of the Fitzgeralds as they moved from the flaming flappers of Princeton and Montgomery, Alabama, to the desperate boozers of Hollywood."—Los Angeles Times
"Funny and sad, comic and tragic, this exceptional collection supplements the works by Mizener, Turnbull, and Milford, but is oddly more powerful than any book on the Fitzgeralds. A most interesting and fascinating book."—Library Journal
