Take Note: The Lost Generation with Linda Patterson Miller

Audio archive requires Adobe Flash player. Flash is not supported on iPad or iPhone.

Just hearing someone mention “The Great Gatsby” is enough to evoke vivid images of the roaring twenties--elaborate parties, flappers and booglegging gangsters! But how much do we know about the man behind Gatsby? F. Scott Fitzgerald and his contemporaries form a cohort of some of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Literary expert and Penn State Professor Linda Patterson Miller is the editor of “Letters of the Lost Generation.” She talks with us about the authors of The Lost Generation, about what their letters reveal, and about how real life is often more interesting than fiction.
