Zelda Fitzgerald was the original wild child of the Roaring Twenties, who, in her own words “did not have a single feeling of inferiority, or shyness, or doubt, and no moral principles”. In all this, she was the arbiter not just of the modern age, but for all that has followed, from the cult of celebrity to the idea of the damaged beauty.

Scott Fitzgerald
