From the author of The Great Gatsby comes a beautiful tale of love, wealth and destruction – set to the backdrop of the 1920s French Riviera.

1925. In the summer heat of the French Riviera, 18-year-old movie-star Rosemary meets Dick Diver. And for a moment she lives in the bright-blue worlds of his eyes.

But Dick is a married man. He and his glamorous wife Nicole are at the centre of a wealthy and glittering American crowd that laze the holiday season away on the dazzling beaches. Yet, as the drama of the summer unfolds, the idyllic world of the Divers starts to shatter.

A dark secret lies at the heart of Nicole and Dick’s marriage. Theirs is a complicated, corrupt love – destined to leave one of them utterly destroyed.


Book of a lifetime...suffused as it is with both the glamour and poignancy of Fitzgerald's own life: in particular, the failure of his marriage to the lovely, unbalanced Zelda and his acute sense of himself as a great and a ruined artist
[Tender is the Night is] the novel Fitzgerald liked best of the four he published during his lifetime...has been quietly assuming, over the years, something like the status of an American classic
