The Jazz Age

To mark the birthday of F. Scott Fitzgerald, the quintessential author of the Jazz Age, our Modern Literature specialists have chosen a selection of books which capture both the essence of fashionable society in the 1920s and 30s and as well as the disillusionment of post-war America.
