Also Brilliant .....

... and also celebrating his birthday today is F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of 20th-century America’s great authors, and chronicler of a time he dubbed the “Jazz Age,” born on this day in 1896.

Here is Wikipedia's write-up on Fitzgerald, and the International F. Scott Fitzgerald Society's website.

I particularly like this site, the F. Scott Fitzgerald Centenary website created in 1996 by the University of South Carolina, which features some of the most heart-felt tributes to the man, his achievements, his faults, and his all-too-short life and career.
