Read full description of the books Babylon Revisited: Short Story:
As a young, wealthy, and good-looking man, Charlie fit right into the jazz-age scene. But when his easy life comes crashing down with the stock market in 1929, Charlie ends up losing his passionate young wife and his daughter, Honoria. As Charlie sets out to convince his in-laws to return his daughter to his care, he reminisces about the life he lived and the path that led to his current state.
“Babylon Revisited” is a semi-autobiographical story based on the period in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s life when his wife, Zelda, was committed to a sanitarium. During that time, Fitzgerald’s sister-in-law, blaming him for her sister’s state of mind, tried to adopt the couple’s daughter. The story was adapted into the 1954 movie The Last Time I Saw Paris starring Elizabeth Taylor and Van Johnson.
