"First you take a drink," F. Scott Fitzgerald once noted, "then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you." Fitzgerald wrote alcohol into almost every one of his stories.
On Booze gathers debutantes and dandies, rowdy jazz musicians, lost children and ragtime riff-raff into a newly compiled collection taken from The Crack-Up, and other works.
On Booze portrays "The Jazz Age" as Fitzgerald experienced it: roaring, rambunctious, and lush - with quite a hangover.
