Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald - Therese Anne Fowler

This was a really good book. I liked hearing Zelda Fitzgerald's voice, even though it wasn't quite as good overall as The Paris Wife. There was a section about 2/3 of the way in that dragged for me.The most interesting part dealt with her "schizophrenia" - it's pretty obvious that the poor woman was depressed, not mentally ill! Her husband was a cheating, alcoholic, spendthrift that belittled her to curry favor with his BFF Ernest Hemingway, even though she was a talented artist, dancer and writer in her own right. No wonder she had a breakdown after being treated the way she was treated. It was really sad that Hemingway destroyed what appeared to be a great relationship and strong partnership with his petty jealousy and misogyny. The author did a great job researching Scott & Zelda's lives and her historical accuracy really comes through, even though this is a work of fiction. I'd definitely recommend this to everyone who liked The Paris Wife, and strong females.
