The Love of the Last Tycoon
The Love of the Last Tycoon is a novel based roughly on the life of film executive Irving Thalberg by F. Scott Fitzgerald, who died in 1940 before finishing it. The notes for the novel were 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.
There is now critical agreement that Fitzgerald intended the title of the novel to be The Love of the Last Tycoon — a title that is reflected in the 1994 edition of the book, edited by the respected Fitzgerald scholar Matthew Bruccoli.
