Slow afternoon, so I’m reading about the Fitzgeralds:
After a drunken and violent fight with [his mistress] in 1938, Scott returned to Asheville. A group from Zelda’s [mental] hospital had planned to go to Cuba, but Zelda had missed the trip. The Fitzgeralds decided to go on their own. The trip was a disaster even by their standards: Scott was beaten up when he tried to stop a cockfight and returned to the United States so intoxicated and exhausted that he was hospitalized. The Fitzgeralds never saw each other again.
