I personally don't really believe in the term 'The Jazz Age' from an academic perspective. It basically means anything by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and I detest Hemingway.


Virginia Woolf is good, but she's not a 'Jazz age' writer, just writing at the same time. Maybe some of her short stories is a good thing to read. Or were you looking for things set specifically in the roaring 20s?

Doesn't always put you in the right direction, might be looking for someone to recommend a book.

Have you checked out other Fitzgerald works? He was the guy who coined the term "The Jazz Age" after all.

The Beautiful and the Damned is my favourite of his -completely captures the period.

If you take the Jazz Age in a broader sense, check out American works written about 1914 - 1929.

Actually, the Great Gatsby was very unpopular at the time of release. No-one bought it. I'd say that makes it quite a-typical of good literature of the time.
