< Ernest Hemingway once recalled being seated next to Zelda at a dinner party when she abruptly asked him: "Ernest, don’t you think Al Jolson is greater than Jesus?" >

New series fit for Weldon Kees, if I may suggest.

Awesome idea for a new series and a beautiful way to begin it!

What a beauty!

As goodlooking as she is, Zelda must have been captivating in person.

She really was beautiful. What a great idea for a new series.

I happen to be reading a biography of Robert Benchley right now. Here's hoping that this series will be featuring the Algonquin Roundtable gang!

The Jazz Age rules. Fuck these darn kids with their iPad!

This is a great idea for a series. Many photos of Zelda do not do her justice. This one shows why people raved about her beauty. Scott recycled many of her diaries and letters into his novels, which is why she said "Plagiarism begins at home."

One word: fetching.

I guess she wasn't the inspiration for the Bonzo Dog Band's Beautiful Zelda, but she should have been!
