It had to be a Fitzgerald for August’s Book of the Month.
I say ‘book’, when I really mean short story. At under 60 pages long, it’s a pleasure to read in one sitting.
John is invited to stay for the summer with a mysterious and very wealthy school friend, Percy.
With a fantastical twist, the story takes you to a world of ‘exquisite tapestries of silk woven with jewels and embroideries’.
Short stories rapidly move and transport you to another world… and none with more conviction and power than F. Scott Fitzgerald.
The Diamond as Big as the Ritz by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Penguin Books.
