Publisher's Summary

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.

Love the unique style of Zelda Fitzgerald!

Zelda's writing style is very unique and can be hard to follow along at times, but I truly love this story and enjoy it more each time I read it!

Audio is a great platform for Zelda's writing--

Jennifer Van Dyck did a wonderful job; this is not a simple book, and I never felt tangled in metaphors or lost by the many accents she had to juggle. Only four stars because her choice of voice for Alabama had to grow on me, and Bonnie's never exactly grew on me at all, but a real consistent read!

There's more to be said for Zelda Fitzgerald than I am going to be able to fit into this review but this book touches the same place in my heart that "The Bell Jar" does-- vivid imagery and language used to detail a young woman's breakdown. Zelda in her lifetime never got the recognition for this work that she very much deserved. It is a good book which can become convoluted on the page alone, and I thought audio was an excellent medium to really bring the narrative into its best experience.
