With this autobiographical novel, Fitzgerald established his reputation as a writer of graceful prose and timely themes. It traces Amory Blaine's intellectual and moral development, from pampered childhood, through prep schools and Princeton, love affairs and WWI, to maturing self-acceptance. Actor Peter Marinker, using an urbane, Fonda-like voice, interprets the many diverse characters well. A lesser narrator could have easily fallen into parody. He also renders the poetry, letters and the section written as a play with appropriate versatility. Most importantly, Marinker doesn't rush the reading. With polished enunciation, he allows Fitzgerald's elegant, rhythmic writing an aural dimension it deserves. P.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 94]
