Item Info



Tendre est la nuit [Tender Is the Night]

First French edition. Wrappers as issued. Pages a little browned, else a bright and fine copy, with most of the original wraparound band (with a quote from Gide) laid in. Fitzgerald had all but fallen off the map when this, his last completed novel, was issued. A portrait of expatriates on the French Riviera, it was supposedly based on Gerald and Sara Murphy but is as likely based on the Fitzgeralds themselves. The 1962 film version by Henry King, the last of his many films adapted from literary novels, featured Jason Robards and Jennifer Jones. Connolly 100.
