作家史考特.费兹杰罗 (F. Scott Fitzgerald) 出生

费兹杰罗从学校毕业之后,他选择进入军队服务。当他驻扎在雪瑞登营 (Camp Sheridan) 的时候,他遇到了丽尔达.莎伊瑞 (Zelda Sayre) ,而且与她相恋。为了赢得丽尔达的芳心,费兹杰罗在1920年重写并出版了他的第一本小说「天堂的那一端 (The Side of Paradise) 。这本小说反映了费兹杰罗在普林斯顿大学就读时的时光,内容在说明一个年轻人努力追求爱情与工作上的成就满足。在接下来的数十年里,虽然费兹杰罗必须面对自己的酒瘾毛病,以及丽尔达的健康问题,但是费兹杰罗夫妇还是沉浸在文学上的生活与名声。

After turbulent years of schooling, Fitzgerald joined the army. While stationed at Camp Sheridan, he met and fell in love with Zelda Sayre. To win her hand, he rewrote and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. The novel, reflecting his years at Princeton University, tells the story of a young man's quest for fulfillment in love and career. Over the course of the next decade and a half, while struggling to cope with the demons of his alcoholism and Zelda's emerging mental illness, the Fitzgeralds enjoyed a life of literary celebrity.
