Publisher's Summary

This 1922 novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald chronicles the life of Anthony Patch, the only heir of millionaire Adam Patch, his grandfather. Anthony is young, handsome and well-educated. He marries the ravishingly beautiful Gloria, and together they plan for the day that Anthony receives his inheritance.
But what will they make of themselves in the meantime as they look forward to a life of wealth and idle leisure? What is the role of purpose in a well-lived life? Fitzgerald explores these questions in a book that is at the same time humorous, sad and tragic.

A Sad Joke by the Author

Just a few lines into the story , Fitzgerald speaks about a "Story " which was to be written, but never published because it was "overly dull" about the upper society. I believe he published this as that Sarcastic joke.

( Then the narration is among the most MUNDANE I have heard in a long while. )
