Save Me the Waltz

A Novel


About The Book

Save Me the Waltz is the first and only novel by the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. During the years when Fitzgerald was working on Tender Is the Night, Zelda Fitzgerald was preparing her own story, which parallels the narrative of her husband, throwing a fascinating light on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s life and work. In its own right, it is a vivid and moving story: the confessions of a famous, slightly doomed glamour girl of the affluent 1920s, which captures the spirit of an era.

Raves and Reviews

"A strangely evocative novel, episodic in structure, painterly in its description, almost hallucinatory in overall effect."

– The New York Times Book Review

"The two Fitzgeralds shared subject matter (both Save Me the Waltz and Scott's Tender Is the Night depict their glamorous marriage) and a gift for rich atmospheric buildup, sensual detail and imaginative metaphor."

– Publishers Weekly

"Represents Zelda's attempt to find her own creative identity separate from her status as the wife of a famous novelist... haunting."

– Library Journal
