'Gatsby's Girl' Explores Fitzgerald's First Love
Author Caroline Preston's Gatsby's Girl takes what little is known about a 19-year-old F. Scott Fitzgerald's love affair with a young Midwestern heiress and turns it into a work of historical fiction.
Preston tells Liane Hansen how she shaped the story through the eyes of Ginevra King, a woman who is able to see her own life play out eerily in Fitzgerald's work and female characters.
