“Who is Scott Fitzgerald, and why is everyone so rude about him?”

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) wrote the novel The Great Gatsby (1925), which is often required reading in American schools. “F” stands for “Francis.”

Wikipedia: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American novelist, essayist, and short story writer. He is best known for his novels depicting the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age—a term he popularized in his short story collection Tales of the Jazz Age. During his lifetime, he published four novels, four story collections, and 164 short stories. (...) His third novel, The Great Gatsby (1925), received generally favorable reviews but was a commercial failure, selling fewer than 23,000 copies in its first year. Despite its lackluster debut, The Great Gatsby is now hailed by some literary critics as the “Great American Novel”.
