The Last Tycoon
Monroe Stahr is a film producer at the height of his career, revered by the industry and in control of every aspect of his business empire. In his ruthless rise to the top, the young widower has had little time for sentiment, until he mets the beguiling Kathleen Moore and the two embark on an intense but ill-fated relationship.
Told in parts from the perspective of Cecelia Brady, the witty and perceptive daughter of Stahr’s business partner, The Last Tycoon is a sophisticated, gripping tale of love and intrigue in the Golden Age of Hollywood, containing what many critics have claimed are Fitzgerald’s most modern and engaging chracters.
He was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a generation.
