Fitzgerald's first anthology contains eight stories of jazz-age youth, those whom the author called "romantic egoists." Notably present--the still popular "Bernice Bobs Her Hair," the superbly written "Ice Palace," and "The Off-Shore Pirate," a riff on Valentino's THE SHEIK, which was itself made into a silent film. Narrator Dufris is a bit over the top, a good and bad thing as applied here. On the one hand, he admirably captures Scott's Edwardian schmaltz; on the other, he caricatures the Dramatis Personae, particularly the women.
