Flappers and Philosophers contains some of Fitzgerald's best early stories.

Flappers and Philosophers was F. Scott Fitzgerald's initial encore--his first collection of short fiction, published in 1920 to capitalize on the success of This Side of Paradise, the novel that had made him famous at the age of twenty-three. Flappers and Philosophers contains some of Fitzgerald's best early stories: "The Offshore Pirate," "Bernice Bobs Her Hair," "The Ice Palace," and "Benediction." In these narratives Fitzgerald presented his prototypical Jazz-Age heroines, beautiful and willful young women who later became trademarks of his fiction. This Cambridge Edition contains fully reedited texts, a scholarly introduction, textual apparatus and facsimilies of working drafts and tearsheets.
