Tender Is the Night | [F. Scott Fitzgerald]

Tender Is the Night

Set on the French Riviera in the late 1920s, Tender Is the Night is the tragic romance of the young actress Rosemary Hoyt and the stylish American couple Dick and Nicole Diver. A brilliant young psychiatrist at the time of his marriage, Dick is both husband and doctor to Nicole, whose wealth goads him into a lifestyle not his own, and whose growing strength highlights Dick's harrowing demise. A profound study of the romantic concept of character - lyrical, expansive, and hauntingly evocative.

Publisher's Summary

Published in 1934, Tender Is the Night was one of the most talked-about books of the year. "It's amazing how excellent much of it is," Ernest Hemingway said to Maxwell Perkins. "I will say now," John O'Hara wrote Fitzgerald, "Tender Is the Night is in the early stages of being my favorite book, even more than This Side of Paradise." And Archibald MacLeish exclaimed: "Great God, Scott...You are a fine writer. Believe it - not me." Set on the French Riviera in the late 1920s, Tender Is the Night is the tragic romance of the young actress Rosemary Hoyt and the stylish American couple Dick and Nicole Diver. A brilliant young psychiatrist at the time of his marriage, Dick is both husband and doctor to Nicole, whose wealth goads him into a lifestyle not his own, and whose growing strength highlights Dick's harrowing demise. A profound study of the romantic concept of character - lyrical, expansive, and hauntingly evocative - Tender Is the Night, Mabel Dodge Luhan remarked, raised F. Scott Fitzgerald to the heights of a "modern Orpheus".

    "Great Novel"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This is a book about a life - the good, the bad, the relationships, the triumphs and the disasters. It is beautifully written and has so many phrases that stick in your memory.


    What other book might you compare Tender Is the Night to and why?

    There is no other book quite like this one. It is totally a 20th century book. Maybe the best of Henry James.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    Yes. She managed to convey all of the emotional intensity of the pivotal moments in the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end of the book is as moving as literature can get.


    Any additional comments?

    Too often, Fitzgerald is thought of as a one-book author, but this book deserves to be read and re-read.
