    Dancing modern suggestive dances that are simply savagery': Fitzgerald and ragtime dance -- The `Chocolate Arabesques' of Josephine Baker: Fitzgerald and jazz dance -- `Satyre upon a Saxaphone': Fitzgerald and music -- The one about sitting on his top hat and climbing up his shirt front': Fitzgerald and musical theatre -- `A more glittering, a grosser power': Fitzgerald and film -- Conclusion: "All my stories are conceived like novels" -- Appendix: Fitzgerald's short story collections -- Notes -- Bibliography -- Index.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald is remembered primarily as a novelist, but he wrote nearly two hundred short stories for popular magazines such as the widely-read Saturday Evening Post. These are vividly infused with the new popular culture of the early twentieth century, from jazz to motion pictures. By exploring Fitzgerald's fascination with the intertwined spheres of dance, music, theatre and film, this book demonstrates how Fitzgerald innovatively imported practices from other popular cultural media into his short stories, showing how jazz age culture served as more than mere period detail in his work.
