New books by F. Scott Fitzgerald don't show up every day, especially because the celebrated American writer of The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night died in Hollywood in 1940. Two years ago, the trustees of the Fitzgerald estate asked editor Anne Margaret Daniel to gather a final assortment of the author's missing work, and the result was I'd Die for You and Other Lost Stories (Scribner), which was released in April. The collection includes three screenplays and various short stories, most previously unpublished, including seven pieces that were discovered among the family's papers in 2012. Daniel discusses how Fitzgerald explored atypical themes and mused about his bittersweet sojourn in L.A. in this career-spanning compilation.
