Published a year after The Great Gatsby, this short-story collection showcases many of the celebrated novel's themes, as well as its unique writing style. Two of the most famous tales, the beautifully elegiac `The Rich Boy' and `Winter Dreams', deal with wealthy protagonists - the old-money Anson Hunter and the self-made man Dexter Green - as they come to terms with lost love, while `Absolution', in which a boy confesses to a priest, was initially written as a background piece to The Great Gatsby. Also containing `The Baby Party', `Rags Martin-Jones and the Pr-nce of W-les', `The Adjuster', `Hot and Cold Blood', `The Sensible Thing' and `Gretchen's Forty Winks' - all of which describe in various ways the 1920s society that Fitzgerald himself inhabited - All the Sad Young Men is a masterpiece of twentieth-century American fiction.
