Call Me Zelda | [Erika Robuck]

Call Me Zelda

From New York to Paris, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald reigned as king and queen of the Jazz Age, seeming to float on champagne bubbles above the mundane cares of the world. But to those who truly knew them, the endless parties were only a distraction from their inner turmoil and from a love that united them with a scorching intensity.

Publisher's Summary

From New York to Paris, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald reigned as king and queen of the Jazz Age, seeming to float on champagne bubbles above the mundane cares of the world. But to those who truly knew them, the endless parties were only a distraction from their inner turmoil and from a love that united them with a scorching intensity.

When Zelda is committed to a Baltimore psychiatric clinic in 1932, vacillating between lucidity and madness in her struggle to forge an identity separate from her husband, the famous writer, she finds a sympathetic friend in her nurse, Anna Howard. Held captive by her own tragic past, Anna is increasingly drawn into the Fitzgeralds' tumultuous relationship. As she becomes privy to Zelda's most intimate confessions, written in a secret memoir meant only for her, Anna begins to wonder which Fitzgerald is the true genius. But in taking ever greater emotional risks to save Zelda, Anna may end up paying a far higher price than she intended.

    What did you love best about Call Me Zelda?

    I really enjoyed getting a glimpse into the life of Zelda Fitzergerald. Robuck did a wonderful job of making you feel as if you were there seeing her life through her nurse. A great summer read..

    "Thin story, staccato performance"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    THe story is not sophisticated and the reading is poor.


    What was most disappointing about Erika Robuck’s story?

    THe story is predictable and lacking depth.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Performance is staccato often particularly for male characters. Seems like the author is too in love with her book.
