Everyone has their favorite book titles, and I confess that a majority of mine fall under the authorship of F. Scott Fitzgerald. I mean The Great Gatsby, This Side of Paradise, A Diamond As Big As The Ritz, and -- favorite -- Flappers and Philosophers. All so catchy and moving and endearing (though, I suppose, in fairness This Side of Paradise should probably be credited to Rupert Brooke. Ah well).
In honor of the upcoming autumnal months -- when all things books, candles, and knit sweater-related take up their mantle as symbols of the season -- I'm posting a free download of the first page of Flappers and Philosophers as it first appeared to readers when it was first released 100 years ago in 1920. I hope you enjoy it!
