The Letters of F. Scott Fitzgerald by F. Scott Fitzgerald

El libro dibuja un retrato de Fitzgerald vívido e inédito. Lejos quedan los años de excesos a ritmo de jazz. El escritor es un hombre maduro que vive solo y que tiene que mantener desde la distancia a sus dos mujeres con un sueldo escaso. Su trabajo en el cine no le llena y no le va tan bien como debiera. Durante los casi diez años que dura el tráfico de cartas con su hija, Fitzgerald se muda infinidad de veces y va allá donde lo contratan para escribir guiones de cine que no siempre llegan a buen puerto. Es un hombre mayor que encima ve a lo lejos cómo su hija hace lo que hacen todas las adolescentes: vivir la vida a tope sin mirar atrás. Las idas y venidas de Scottie, sus líos (llegó a ser expedientada en Vassar, aunque nunca llegaron a expulsarla), sus suspensos, su pereza a la hora de entregar los trabajos y de leer la enorme lista de libros que le impone su padre… Todo esto provoca en Fitzgerald una frustración tremenda, la típica del padre que sabe que su hija “vale más que eso”. Y no se molesta en esconderlo. Sus cartas son severas y directas y, sobre todo, cuando se trata de hablar de dinero, no se anda con paños calientes. Las termina, eso sí, siempre con una rúbrica cariñosa, un “Papi” que nos recuerda que el escritor era, antes que educador y vigilante, un padre cariñoso. Gracias a estas cartas vemos cómo el empeño de Fitzgerald obtiene resultado a medida que Scottie se hace mayor y el lapso entre cartas se acorta, Scottie va aceptando sus consejos y desde las letras del padre vemos cómo la hija se convierte en persona al mismo tiempo. Y así, estas “Cartas a mi hija” se desvelan como un precioso tesoro que nos sirve no sólo para conocer cómo era Fitzgerald en las distancias realmente cortas sino para presenciar una bonita relación entre padre e hija que confirma en todas las casas cuecen habas… Aunque sea a ritmo de jazz.

In most of the letters of the first group, the spelling and punctuation have been left as they were in the originals, except for the uniform italicization of titles of books and magazines and the insertion of missing ends of parentheses.
