Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald

4 Seasons Book Club Selections

Tender is the Night
by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Set on the French Riviera in the late 1920s, Tender is the Night is the tragic romance of the young actress Rosemary Hoyt and the stylish American couple Dick and Nicole Diver. A brilliant young psychiatrist at the time of his marriage, Dick is both husband and doctor to Nicole, whose wealth goads him into a lifestyle not his own, and whose growing strength highlights Dick's harrowing demise. A profound study of the romantic concept of character, Tender is the Night is lyrical, expansive, and hauntingly evocative.

A limited number of copies of Tender is the Night will be available to borrow for preregistered participants.

Here is a list of further reading and resources.
