All the Sad Young Men

F. Scott Fitzgerald

All the Sad Young Men is the third collection of short stories written by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald was disillusioned and having money problems when wrote the stories. He believed his wife Zelda was seeing another man she had suffered a series of physical illnesses and his play The Vegetable had been a failure. Expecting more failure Fitzgerald was surprised by its critical acclaim. The New York Times said of it "The publication of this volume of short stories might easily have been an anti-climax after the perfection and success of The Great Gatsby of last Spring. A novel so widely praised - by people whose recognition counts - is stiff competition. It is even something of a problem for a reviewer to find new and different words to properly grace the occasion. It must be said that the collection as a whole is not sustained to the high excellence of The Great Gatsby but it has stories of fine insight and finished craft."
