Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald married in St. Patrick’s, New York, in 1920, one week after publication of “This Side of Paradise.”  The other side of Paradise was bleak indeed for this couple.  Two sides of the same heart, broken by original sin — the wonder of being like God, and the wretched outcomes of wanting to be God.  The audio link includes Zelda’s love letter at age 18 to Scott.  Fathers, do not wish this upon your daughters.
