|Zelda Fitzgerald 1900-1948|
|Zelda Fitzgerald and her husband, writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, were the golden couple of the 1920s, epitomizing the roaring promise of the decade. They were wealthy, glamorous and talented, and their pictures were splashed across newspapers and magazines worldwide. She was America’s first flapper and served as the model for Scott’s fictional heroines. Zelda and Scott’s brilliance and their excesses defined the age. And like the decade itself, their brief, tempestuous lives ended in calamity. Beginning at age thirty, Zelda spent much of her remaining years in mental hospitals, receiving treatment for schizophrenia. She perished at age 48 in a fire at Highland Hospital in Asheville, North Carolina.
Muse to Madness allows Zelda to tell the story of her glory and her disintegration. Zelda takes her guests on a journey through memory, recounting her life as wife and muse to one of America’s greatest writers, F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby. It is, as one writer described it, “the saddest story you’ve ever heard.”
