Read full description of the books:



Resérvame el vals, única novela de Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, esposa del célebre escritor norteamericano Francis Scott Fitzgerald, ha permanecido inédita en España hasta la presente edición. Publicada en 1932 por Charles Scribner, la historia de la elaboración del texto no escapa, una vez más, a la leyenda del matrimonio Fitzgerald. El núcleo principal fue redactado aproximadamente a lo largo de cuatro semanas durante la estancia de su autora en el hospital psiquiátrico John Hopkins de Baltimore, en 1932, internada allí por mostrar graves trastornos psíquicos. Cuando Scott lo leyó se sintió furioso al comprobar que estaba basado en buena parte en el mismo material autobiográfico que daba soporte a su novela en desarrollo, Suave es la noche (1934), lo que le llevó a persuadir a su esposa para una revisión conjunta del material. Una vez satisfecho con el resultado, él mismo escribiría a su editor: «Aquí está la novela de Zelda. Ahora es una buena novela, quizá una muy buena novela –podría llegar a decir. Tiene los defectos y las virtudes de una primera novela... Se trata de algo absolutamente nuevo... »

Alabama Beggs, alter ego de Zelda Fitzgerald, constituye el eje alrededor del cual gira la acción. De la mano de Alabama nos adentramos en la conmovedora evocación del entorno familiar y social en el que se desarrolla su infancia, propio de una decimonónica ciudad del sur de los Estados Unidos. A partir de su matrimonio con un pintor de fulgurante éxito iniciarán un largo viaje por Nueva York y Europa. Scott y Zelda Fitzgerald formarían parte del círculo de escritores norteamericanos de la denominada Generación perdida, con epicentro en el París de entreguerras. En este sentido, Resérvame el vals encierra un importante valor como testimonio, desde la óptica particular de una mujer, del ambiente que se respiraba en aquellos días en que –en palabras de Hemingway– París era una fiesta. Allí resurge la pasión de Zelda por la danza profesional y, en una espiral de impotencia y fatalidad, el relato nos conducirá por la senda de un doble fracaso personal, como bailarina y como esposa. El estilo de Zelda está salpicado de muchos de los hallazgos de la vanguardia literaria, especialmente en cuanto a la exquisita poética que lo recorre, sin perder por ello la eficacia del tiempo narrativo y la sutileza de los diálogos".

Read information about the author

Ebook Resérvame el vals read Online! Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, born Zelda Sayre, was a novelist and the wife of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. She was an icon of the 1920s—dubbed by her husband "the first American Flapper". After the success of his first novel This Side of Paradise (1920), the Fitzgeralds became celebrities. The newspapers of New York saw them as embodiments of the Jazz Age and the Roaring Twenties: young, rich, beautiful, and energetic.

Zelda Sayre grew up in a wealthy and prim southern family. Even as a child her audacious behavior was the subject of Montgomery gossip. Shortly after finishing high school, she met F. Scott Fitzgerald at a dance. A whirlwind courtship ensued. Though he had professed his infatuation, she continued seeing other men. Despite fights and a prolonged break-up, they married in 1920, and spent the early part of the decade as literary celebrities in New York. Later in the 1920s, they moved to Europe, recast as famous expatriates of the Lost Generation. While Scott received acclaim for The Great Gatsby and his short stories, and the couple socialized with literary luminaries like Ernest Hemingway, their marriage was a tangle of jealousy, resentment and acrimony. Scott used their relationship as material in his novels, even lifting snippets from Zelda's diary and assigning them to his fictional heroines. Seeking an artistic identity of her own, Zelda wrote magazine articles and short stories, and at 27 became obsessed with a career as a ballerina, practicing to exhaustion.

The strain of her tempestuous marriage, Scott's increasing alcoholism, and her growing instability presaged Zelda's admittance to a sanatorium in 1930. She was diagnosed with schizophrenia. While in a Maryland clinic, she wrote a semi-autobiographical novel, Save Me the Waltz, which was published in 1932. Scott was furious that she had used material from their life together, though he had done the same, such as in Tender Is the Night, published in 1934; the two novels provide contrasting portrayals of the couple's failing marriage.

Back in America, Scott went to Hollywood where he tried screenwriting and began an affair with the movie columnist Sheilah Graham. In 1936, Zelda entered the Highland Mental Hospital in Asheville, North Carolina. Scott died in Hollywood in 1940, having last seen Zelda a year and a half earlier. She spent her remaining years working on a second novel, which she never completed, and she painted extensively. In 1948, the hospital at which she had been a patient caught fire, causing her death. Interest in the Fitzgeralds resurged shortly after her death: the couple has been the subject of popular books, movies and scholarly attention. After a life as an emblem of the Jazz Age, Roaring Twenties, and Lost Generation, Zelda Fitzgerald posthumously found a new role: after a popular 1970 biography portrayed her as a victim of an overbearing husband, she became a feminist icon.


Reviews of the Resérvame el vals


OWEN

Black and White

NATHAN

From disgust to delight!

JESSICA

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

GEORGE

The book is really worthy of the bestseller!

ELIZABETH

Strongly recommend
