Short biography
Zelda Fitzgerald was born in Montgomery, Alabama, to a prominent Southern family. She became a painter, novelist, socialite, and the wife of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. She is still considered an icon of the so-called Roaring Twenties and the Lost Generation. Zelda's bold spirit captivated those around her, and she served as a muse for much of her husband's literary work. Their famously turbulent marriage was complicated by alcoholism, violence, financial troubles, and Zelda's battles with mental health issues. Her own literary endeavors included a semi-autobiographical novel, Save Me the Waltz, a play entitled Scandalabra, and numerous magazine articles and short stories. She died tragically at age 47 in a fire at Highland Hospital in Asheville, North Carolina.
