Amongst his famous novels Scott Fitzgerald also wrote successful plays such as The Vegetable From President to Postman, The Girl From Lazy J, and the screenplay of The Three Comrades. He was one of the few novelists to take risks with writing style at the time. Of course, every writer and playwright has their own inspiration and muse, and like many other international writers, Scott was in love with Paris. He was part of the American expat group who often made trips to Paris for inspiration, including fellow writer, Ernest Hemingway whom he initially met at Dingo Bar in Montparnasse. The two were often regulars at Café de la Rotonde, also located in Montparnasse, where we currently show Addition and Molière In Spite of Myself!
Fitzgerald's love for Paris can be seen among other great works, such as the film Midnight In Paris, in which Tom Hiddletson plays Scott, as well as in the novel, The Paris Wife by Paula McLain, who makes a reference to the author.
