    There is a blurb from Independent on Sunday on the back of my copy which sums up this book quite well Scott and Zelda s letters make it clear that both of them knew they had wasted their youth, beauty and early success And both of them understood that they were bound together They really do, the letters.There is one bulk of letters from before the marriage of this famous couple, but the great bulk is from after Zelda s breakdown in 1930 when the couple for long periods were not living toget There is a blurb from Independent on Sunday on the back of my copy which sums up this book quite well Scott and Zelda s letters make it clear that both of them knew they had wasted their youth, beauty and early success And both of them understood that they were bound together They really do, the letters.There is one bulk of letters from before the marriage of this famous couple, but the great bulk is from after Zelda s breakdown in 1930 when the couple for long periods were not living together Neither of them come across as people easy to deal with and with the added problems of alcoholism Scott and mental instability Zelda and the way they galloped through the roaring twenties one can t be surprised that it ended in such a mess ...
