SAVE ME THE WALTZ. Zelda Fitzgerald.


New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. First edition, first and only printing, with the "A" and the publisher's seal on the copyright page. Save Me the Waltz was written by Zelda Fitzgerald (1900-48) in six hectic weeks while recovering from a breakdown. The novel is intensely autobiographical, portraying a Southern belle's struggle to rise above being "a back-seat driver about life" and to earn respect for her own accomplishments - to establish herself independently of her husband. It is a forceful, truthful picture of a legendary marriage in a fabulous age, and one of the most shattering self-portraits of a woman ever committed to paper. Octavo. Original light green cloth binding, with blue titles. The spine is sun faded. In the excedingly scarce dust jacket, which is rather shelfworn and soiled, more so along the spine and folds, with some shallow chipping to the extremities. Bruccoli ZF-A1.1. Very good / Good.
