fully daswed ys thy looke...

Ditzy girl from York who loves renaissance literature, and shiny shiny TV shows....

This is Zelda Sayre-Fitzgerald. Writer, fashion icon, and wife of F.Scott Fitzgerald. 
I’ve included her here today because I recently finished reading Tender is the Night in which Zelda apparently acted as the model for Nicole Diver.

It’s an extraordinary book. A fascinating creative picture of mental illness, love, marriage and hedonism. It encapsulates a particular, intoxicatingly free, moment in history wonderfully. It’s beautifully sensually evocative, you touch, taste, smell and hear everything the characters do. I think it’s more challenging and sensative than The Great Gatsby though I love that too. Highly recommended
