Scott Fitzgerald's first novel, This Side of Paradise, and his first short story collection, Flappers and Philosophers, this panel will discuss the 1920 background to Fitzgerald's emergence and how both he and Zelda capitalised on the visual opportunities provided by cinema, modern publishing, and the mass media.
