By the time Viking published this anthology, Scott had been dead for five years and his works long out of print. With Dorothy Parker editing and John O'Hara providing an introduction, the present collection began the slow rebuilding of his reputation — though there was yet precious little "reflected glory" for the sadly dissipated and bipolar Zelda to bask in. Back at her parent's home in Alabama in 1946, after many asylum stays and unsuccessful mental treatments, Zelda maintained a sporadic year-long correspondence with Paul McLendon,a young writer, who sent her his work to critique and this volume to inscribe.
In 1947, Zelda returned to the asylum in Asheville, North Carolina, where she died in a fire the next year.
