"A persuasive argument for a new edition of the novel. . . . [West] has given us a view of Fitzgerald in the act of writing, which is a rare view indeed."—Michael S. Reynolds, North Carolina State University

"West admirably succeeds in his stated purpose, which is to write 'a blend of textual, biographical, and critical scholarship' which will appeal not merely to literary scholars but to all those interested in F. Scott Fitzgerald."—Resources for American Literary Study
