I simply state that I’m a product of a versatile mind in a restless generation—with every reason to throw my mind and pen in with the radicals.

This Side of Paradise
 
F. Scott Fitzgerald
 
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s This Side of Paradise describes life at Princeton among the glittering, bored, and disillusioned—the post–World War I “lost generation.” Published in 1920, when he was just twenty-three, the novel was an overnight success and shot Fitzgerald to instant stardom as dauphin of the Jazz Age.
