Francis was born on September 24th, 1896 in Saint Paul, Minnesota to an upper middle class family.
Fitzgerald dropped out of Princeton University to join the U.S. Army.

His third novel, “The Great Gatsby” (1925), was highly regarded, but “Tender is the Night” (1934) was considered a disappointment.
Struggling with alcoholism and his wife’s mental illness, Fitzgerald attempted to reinvent himself as a screenwriter. He died before completing his final novel, “The Last Tycoon” (1941), but earned posthumous acclaim as one of America’s most celebrated writers.
