The Love of The Last Tycoon is an unfinished novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, compiled and published posthumously. The notes for the novel were initially collected and edited by the literary critic Edmund Wilson, who was a close friend of Fitzgerald, and the unfinished novel was published in 1941 as The Last Tycoon, though there is now critical agreement that Fitzgerald intended The Love of the Last Tycoon to be the book's title. Inspired by the life of film producer Irving Thalberg, on whom protagonist Monroe Stahr is based, the story follows Stahr's rise to power in Hollywood, and his conflicts with rival Pat Brady, a character based on studio head Louis B. Mayer. Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896 – 1940) was an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.

Fitzgerald's experiences as a screen writer in Hollywood provided the fodder for this unfinished novel (Fitzgerald died of a heart attack in December 1940 after having partially completed Chapter 6 of The Last Tycoon). The author's notes concerning the balance of the novel were collected and edited by literary critic Edmund Wilson, a close friend to Fitzgerald, and the book was published posthumously in 1941. The story concerns the rise to power of Hollwood producer Monroe Stahr, a character allegedly based on Irving Thalberg, whose talent, ambition and raw magnetism were traits Fitzgerald admired. Sayre Street Books offers the world's greatest literature in easy to navigate, beautifully designed digital editions.

Fitzgerald's last novel, published posthumously in 1941, was edited by Edmund Wilson, who attempted to polish the work to make it appear less like a work in progress. This version of the acclaimed Cambridge Critical text draws on the manuscript and Fitzgerald's own working drafts, notes, revisions, and corrections.

F.S. Fitzgerald was an American writer, whose works illustrate the Jazz Age. The Last Tycoon is a magnificent story of doomed love set against the extravagance of America's booming film industry. The studio lot looks like 'thirty acres of fairyland' the night that a mysterious woman stands and smiles at Monroe Stahr, the last of the great Hollywood princes. Enchanted by one another, they begin a passionate but hopeless love affair. The romance unfolds, frame by frame, watched by Cecilia, a thoroughly modern girl who has taken her lessons in sentiment and cynicism from all the movies she has seen. The play The Vegetable was a satirical attack on the presidency of Warren Harding. An ordinary, incompetent man, taunted for his lack of ambition by his family, realises his dream of ruling the United States of America.
