This Side of Paradise
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Duration: 10 hours 41 minutes
F. Scott Fitzgerald's first novel features Amory Blaine, a handsome, wealthy, spoiled, and snobbish young man from the Midwest who attends Princeton University to acquire a refined sense of the proper social values. Lacking all sense of purpose, he interests himself primarily in literary cults, vaguely liberal student activities, and a series of flirtations with some rather predatory young ladies. Partially autobiographical, This Side of Paradise was credited with having invented the American flapper.
