    Introduction / Dave Page -- The Thoughtbook of F. Scott Fitzgerald -- Photographs -- Afterword / Dave Page.
    "Originally published in facsimile by Princeton University Press, 1965"--Title page verso.
    When F. Scott Fitzgerald was fourteen and living in the Crocus Hill neighborhood of St. Paul, he began keeping a short diary of his exploits among his friends, friendly rivals, and crushes. He gave the journal a title page--Thoughtbook of Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald of St. Paul Minn. U.S.A.--and kept it securely locked in a box under his bed. He would later use The Thoughtbook as the basis for "The Book of Scandal" in his Basil Lee Duke stories, and brief sections were copied over the years for use by scholars and even published in Life magazine. Thiis complete transcription of his twenty-seven-page diary highlights Fitzgerald's escapades among the children of some of St. Paul's most influential families--models for the families described in The Great Gatsby. Presented in a simple format for both scholars and general readers alike, The Thoughtbook of F. Scott Fitzgerald includes a new introduction by Dave Page that covers the history and provenance of the diary, its place and meaning in Fitzgerald's literary development, and its revelations about his life and writing process. The Thoughtbook provides a unique glimpse of Fitzgerald as a young boy and his social circle as they played among the grand homes of Summit Avenue, making up games, starting secret societies, competing with rivals, and staying up-to-date on who exactly is vying for whose attention. --Excerpted from publisher.
