AP Reading List – Book-a-Day: Babylon Revisited

Babylon RevisitedAuthor:  F. Scott Fitzgerald

Category:  Fiction

Overview: Charlie Wales reflects on his life during the roaring ’20s after the 1929 stock market crash.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “A short story about the dissolution of a family.  What makes it more powerful is that it is almost entirely autobiographical.  I believe this is a nearly perfect example of short fiction.”

Ethan: “A wonderful followup read for me since I really enjoyed The Great Gatsby. However, I bet “Babylon Revisited” also provides a stirring tale of the dying Jazz Age”

Karen: “A collection of short stories from F. Scott Fitzgerald dealing with dissatisfaction, failure and tragedy. Incredibly moving and wonderfully written.”
