About this Recording

FITZGERALD, F.S.: Tender is the Night (Unabridged)

It is 1925, and Richard Diver is the high priest of the good life on the white sands of the French Riviera. The Beautiful People—film stars, socialites, aristocrats—gather eagerly and bitchily around him and his wife Nicole. Beneath the breathtaking glamour, however, is a world of pain, and there is at the core of their lives a brittle hollowness.

Beautiful, powerful and tragic, Tender is the Night is one of the great works of American fiction.
