His semiautobiographical first novel, Fitzgerald traces the early life of Amory Blaine from the end of prep school through Princeton to the start of an uncertain career in New York City. Amory yearns to run with Princeton's rich, fast crowd and become one of the "gods" of the campus. Hopelessly romantic, he learns about love and sex from a series of beautiful young "flappers," women who leave him both exhilarated and devastated.
