Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 - December 21, 1940) was an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of the Jazz Age. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Fitzgerald is considered a member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s. He finished four novels: "This Side of Paradise", "The Beautiful and Damned", "The Great Gatsby" (his most famous), and "Tender Is the Night". A fifth, unfinished novel, "The Love of the Last Tycoon", was published posthumously. Fitzgerald also wrote many short stories that treat themes of youth and promise along with age and despair. Fitzgerald's work has been adapted into films many times. His short story, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", was the basis for a 2008 film. "Tender Is the Night" was filmed in 1962, and made into a television miniseries in 1985. "The Beautiful and Damned" was filmed in 1922 and 2010. "The Great Gatsby" has been the basis for numerous films of the same name, spanning nearly 90 years: 1926, 1949, 1974, 2000, and 2013 adaptations. In addition, Fitzgerald's own life from 1937 to 1940 was dramatized in 1958 in "Beloved Infidel"

Bend with the Wind tells the story of an extraordinary woman, Grace Eto Shibata, and her family in 20th century California. It is the story of one family's belief in the American dream and offers a window into the history of a generation of Japanese Americans growing up in the 1930s and 1940s. As seen through the eyes of the youngest of eight children, Grace's account spans 100 years of her family history, beginning with her parents' immigration to the California's Central Coast in the early twentieth century. The story follows a generation of pioneers whose resilience and determination built strong families and strong communities. It shares the values that bound Grace's tightly knit family and supported Grace throughout her life, a life shaped by World War II, an arranged marriage, a family business, and motherhood. The book presents the story of a gracious and determined individual who learned to reach beyond her comfort zone to attain her own personal goals and dreams. Bend with the Wind celebrates Grace's life as a wife, mother, businesswoman, activist, author, and seventy-four-year-old college graduate. Meticulously researched and beautifully illustrated with documents and photographs of Grace, her family, and the communities in which they lived, this biographical memoir provides the reader with an emotionally satisfying and inspiring life story.

Everything she thought was turned upside down. Now she wonders about magic, and the nature of true power, as they explore each other’s worlds. She is swept up in newfound love that brings a whirlwind of change. For the first time in her life, she feels connected to herself, to Zria, and the world around her. She knows it is all because of Zria: magic and charming and completely foreign. In a very short time, he has become her whole world. She feels so connected to Zria, that she forgets that he is truly Faenyr, in a way that she is not. What will she do when she realizes they may be less alike than she thought?

The boisterous and bow-legged Happy Family of Montana rides high in this sequel to Chip of the Flying U. Originally published in 1910, The Happy Family is, like Chip, cinematic in its fast action, unusual in its emphasis on human relationships, unique in its warmth and humor. Here are the cowpokes who endeared themselves to generations of readers?Andy, Weary, Irish, Pink, Happy Jack, Big Medicine, and the rest. They were so popular that their creator devoted a series of novels to their wrangling on the rangeland and in the ranchhouse. These stories play out in the badlands, on the edge of the Rockies. Andy Green, "not famous ever for clinging to the truth," encounters Miss Verbena Martin, who is dedicated to the self-improvement of cowboys and is a character worthy of Mark Twain. Riding a red roan at a contest in Great Falls, Andy hangs on to his honor and pride by the seat of his pants. In another story, there is a crisis concerning the French cook Patsy, whose specialty is heavy pie and not floating island. All this fun has a western flavor, the smell of sage, and the feel of cowhide.
