I am reviewing a copy of Dear Scott, Dearest Zelda through Scribner and Netgalley:

Scott and Zelda met in Montgomery Alabama, Zelda’s hometown in July of 1918, likely at a country club dance.

In August of 1918 Scott sends Zelda a chapter from his novel The Romantic Egotist.

For over twenty two years Scott and Zelda remain devoted to each other through her mental illnesses and his battle with alcoholism.

Dear Scott, Dearest Zelda includes three hundred love letters that were collected to show why their love story was called one of the greatest of the twentieth century.

I found Dear Scott, Dearest Zelda to be a beautifully done and well researched glimpse into the lives of two people who through the best and the worst. A true love story, by two of the greatest literary influences in the twentieth century!

Five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
