The Last Tycoon, An Unfinished Novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald
A very good first edition copy of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon. He was engaged on this novel when he suffered heart failure in Hollywood in 1941. The text of the book is a draft made by the author but is by no means a finished version. Fitzgerald’s notes made it possible to supplement the unfinished draft with an outline of the ending as Fitzgerald intended.
