One of the great literary curios of the 20th century, Save Me the Waltz is the first and only novel by the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. During the years when her husband was working on Tender is the Night - which many critics consider his masterpiece - Zelda Fitzgerald was preparing her own story. The novel strangely parallels events from her husband's life, throwing a fascinating light on Scott Fitzgerald and his work. The story is the confessional of a famous glamour girl of the affluent 1920s and an aspiring ballerina, which captures the spirit of an era. Written in six weeks while recovering from a period of schizophrenia, this tale parallels the narrative of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night.
