SAVE ME THE WALTZ

SAVE ME THE WALTZ

London: Jonathan Cape, 1968. Hardcover. Third edition, first printing thus, with a preface by Harry T. Moore and a note on the text by Matthew J. Bruccoli. 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. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles. Period bookseller's label to the front pastedown. Light bumping to the corners and tips. Some general browning and minor soiling to the dust jacket; else very good. Bruccoli ZF-A1.3.b. Very good / Very good. Item #66136
