The Beautiful and The Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Beautiful and The Damned:

Drinking until disinheritance.

My favorite F. Scott Fitzgerald quote from the book:

"Intelligence is a mere instrument of circumstances."



Questions I pondered while reading The Beautiful and the Damned:

The Fitzgerald question - What does one do with oneself when one has nothing to do?

Does self-absorption cause laziness or vice-versa?

My review of The Beautiful and The Damned:

The fun of rich people's problems.

Miss Gloria is a girl after my own heart.  I want to lay around, read, and dream and think while an imaginary servant brings me lemonades and tomato sandwiches.

I just want my own money too.
