It’s Day 22 of the #A2ZChallenge. This year, I invite you to read and discuss short stories with me. Each day, I bring you a ‘Read of the Day,’ a short story in English, so that we can indulge in the joy of reading. You can visit my site daily for a short story with analysis and participate in the discussion in the comments.
Read of the Day
Today, we will read Babylon Revisited by F. Scott Fitzgerald. You can read the short story online here.
About the Author
F. Scott Fitzgerald was an American author and screenwriter. He wrote four novels, four collections of short stories, and 164 short stories in his lifetime. Fitzgerald is counted among the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
Babylon Revisited by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a touching family drama story and revolves around Charlie Wales, the protagonist. The story chronicles his life as a swinging twenty-something man who had a whale of a time and when his carefree youth days of merriment are over, it’s time to face reality and make up for all the time lost and negligence in his personal life.
