Z: A NOVEL OF ZELDA FITZGERALD

Z: A NOVEL OF ZELDA FITZGERALD

Therese Anne Fowler
Read by Jenna Lamia

Narrator Jenna Lamia's soft Southern accent and languid tone immediately set the mood for this first-person fictional account of Zelda's marriage with F. Scott Fitzgerald, the great American novelist. Lamia's subtle intonations telegraph the young girl's humor and spunk as the newlyweds embrace all that is new and smart, partying their way from New York to Paris and befriending artists, musicians, and writers. But by the end of the 1920s, Zelda's world begins to crumble, and Lamia's voice projects the frustration and loneliness underlying the later years of the once vibrant couple. Whether they blame Scott or Zelda for the Fitzgeralds' mutual disintegration, listeners will be fascinated by this well-researched story of the beautiful flapper and her famous husband during the Roaring Twenties.
