Flappers and Philosophers
Published in 1920 following the success of the novel This Side of Paradise, Fitzgerald's first collection of short stories includes many of his finest. 'The Offshore Pirate', 'Bernice Bobs Her Hair', 'The Ice Palace' and 'Benediction' present his archetypal Jazz Age heroines, the beautiful and wilful young women who became a hallmark of his fiction. Part of the Cambridge Edition series, this volume includes notes and details of the stories' composition and publication history.
The Frozen Woman
One winter’s morning in Oslo, the retired lawyer Vilhelm Thygesen finds a dead woman frozen underneath a tree in his garden. Having initially suspected Thygesen, the investigating detectives, Stribolt and Vaage, eventually uncover a web of violence that extends far beyond Oslo and beyond Norway. Slightly off-mint.
