    One thought on “Acorda-mi acest vals”

    1. I found this in a used bookstore around the corner from my apartment.On the wordy side, but not at all the impenetrable mess people make it out to be. I happen to love dense, elaborate prose. Hers is synesthesiacally brilliant. It's true, the paragraphs are somewhat lacking in rhythm. So much energy went into the individual sentences. But it's one of those books that make me kick my feet with joy and occasionally pause to meditate on a thought or description.Poor Zelda! Even the cover is dedicat [...]

    2. It often strikes me as absurd to attempt to "rate" literature. Save me the Waltz, for example, is probably not a four-star book. It was, however, a four-star reading experience because I have a fascination with the Fitzgeralds; because it is challenging and fragmented and bizarre; because it makes no sense as a novel and belies the meaning of the genre. Certainly not a read for everyone, but if you have read Tender is the Night, or are at all interested in the lovely Zelda, Save Me the Waltz mig [...]

    3. I very nearly regretted picking up this book when, four lines in, I ran into this humdinger of a sentence:“Most people hew the battlements of life from compromise, erecting their impregnable keeps from judicious submissions, fabricating their philosophical drawbridges from emotional retractions and scaulding marauders in the boiling oil of sour grapes.”“Oh snap,” I thought. “I’m never going to get through this.”Either I grew used to it, or she toned her writing down, but reading Sa [...]

    4. I approached this review with some trepidation. I've been fascinated with the Fitzgeralds, admire FS Fitzgerald's writing, and have been curious to read Zelda's work. Obviously a work of fiction, yet this novel has been surmised to be a reflection of Zelda's view of their courtship and marriage. If you've read the fiction novel Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald you will be surprised to also see parallels in the storyline. After reading this, I felt mildly deflated as if you just discovered someone [...]

    5. This is the first and only book written by Zelda Zayre, aka Zelda Fitzgerald.The plot is quite autobiographical even if it's a piece of fiction. The main character, Alabama is a portrait of a wife of a famous artist who struggles to live her own life in the shadow of the success a famous husband. Sometimes, she is quite obsessive in becoming a dancer even if she was not young any longer.One feels that Zelda wrote this book as an auto-therapeutic way out in order to surpass her mental issues (she [...]

    6. Maybe a year ago, full of myself and abnormally self-conscious after reading only some YA and some trashy romances in English, I had borrowed a copy of this book in English, being sure that I could manage anything in Shakespeare’s language. Boy, was I wrong! It proved I wasn’t even able to get beyond first page.Most people hew the battlements of life from compromise, erecting their impregnable keeps from judicious submissions, fabricating their philosophical drawbridges from emotional retrac [...]

    7. Why five stars for such an unevenly written novel? Despite her over use of similes, Zelda's writing sizzles with dazzling descriptions. I'm convinced that she either wrote or edited the first party scene in "Gatsby" because that same cadence of phrasing in those long sentences that crescendo to delirious heights appear throughout "Save Me the Waltz." Another bias that supports five stars rests in my sympathy for Zelda's protagonist, Alabama. When her manic swings are on the rise, her aesthetics [...]

    8. As I picked up Save Me the Waltz to read it a second time, the dry brittle pages started crumbling under my fingers, the dog-eared corners simply gave up and fell away, leaving me surrounded with tiny flakes of yellow paper.Though I wanted to read this while also reading Tender Is the Night, it looks like I'll need to do some book rescue before I can read this one. When I first bought this book, it was out-of-print and impossible to find; I got lucky with a cheap paperback at an oblivious bookst [...]

    9. Zelda wrote Save Me the Waltz, her first and only novel, during the six weeks that she spent in a sanatorium in 1932. It draws on many of the same experiences that would go into her husband Scott's Tender is the Night (which, incidentally, is probably my favorite of his novels). Apparently, the novel was originally much more vehement than the final, edited version suggests (Zelda resisted, but finally caved in and let Scott and Maxwell Perkins edit some of its more critical notes). It begins rou [...]

    10. I think that Zelda Fitzgerald wrote this book as a reaction to F Scott Fitzgerald using their lives and anecdotes as a basis for many of his books. She was a frustrated ballerina and made her protagonist become the star of a ballet troupe in Naples, Italy, where she was asked to join, but was not allowed to accept, by her husband. I felt the book was well written and her explanation of various horrible things that aspiring ballerinas endure was enlightening. It also illuminated her spiral into m [...]

    11. "I am so outrageously clever that I believe I could be a whole world to myself if I didn't like living in Daddy's better." - Alabama Beggs As the glamorous wife of a famous author, Zelda Fitzgerald was already a celebrity when her first (and only published) novel, Save Me the Waltz, appeared in 1932. Was her public notoriety responsible for the book’s lukewarm reception with readers and critics alike? The public continues to be fascinated by the tragic personal stories of F. Scott and Zelda Fi [...]

    12. Curious as to what the mysterious and haunted figure of Zelda had to say for herself. Have just gotten through the intro, but am a bit mortified by Harry T. Moore of Illinois State University's statement that "Obviously, Save Me The Waltz is not at this height of achievement. Yet it deserves to be read as something more than a mere commentary on or analogue of Tender is the Nightis book may lack the finished craftsmanship of Fitzgerald's work, but Save Me the Waltz has a current of life running [...]

    13. I am not sure it is fair to classify this as a "literary curio"--it goes beyond that in many ways. It is a tangle of madness, misery, and even general misanthropy, but it is also tinged with love, admiration, and moments of lucidity.Had this been properly revised, I think it could have been quite a masterpiece. Zelda has this remarkable way with words (half of the lines in the book will require you to read them two or three times over) even though some of her phrasing in somewhat incomprehensibl [...]

    14. Save Me the Waltz is the story of Alabama Beggs, a young Southern girl who meets and falls in love with David Knight during World War I. The two inevitably get married and David goes on to become a successful painter, before moving their family to the French Riviera. However Alabama is determined to find her own success and takes up ballet. When she lands her first solo debut in the opera Faust the cracks in their marriage become evident.After an episode of hysteria in 1932, Zelda Fitzgerald was [...]

    15. 'What can I do with myself,' she thought restlesslyWhen Scott Fitzgerald read this book of Zelda's he found it disturbing for two reasons: that it revealed too much about the intimate workings of their marriage, and that it used material that he considered his own, that was a central part of his Tender is the Night, the book he was still working on when Zelda's own novel was published in 1932. In that sense, this is best read as the other side of the story that Fitzgerald told, not just in Tende [...]

    16. I gave up reading after 140 pages. This book really isn't my cup of tea. I am surprised and disappointed as I love both The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night, and so was looking forward to reading Zelda Fitzgerald's perspective on some of the events that inspired Tender Is the Night. Quite a few reviews I glanced at, before starting the book, suggested that this was more than a literary footnote, and was a good book in its own right. I disagree. It's overwritten, confused and vainly strives f [...]

    17. Southern belle, Alabama Beggs, is the youngest daughter of a prominent judge and unlike her two older sisters from her endearing wit to her attitude towards life. She meets David Knight during his visit to the South during World War I; they marry and ultimately move to live in the Riviera. David, an artist, carries on an affair with an actress, a relationship of which Alabama is aware. In her desperate attempts to salvage the marriage she throws herself into learning ballet, an exceptionally dif [...]

    18. This is a hard book to read--an even harder book to write.So much of this novel has to been seen in the context of Zelda Fitzgerald being the wife of the most popular and well regarded writer of her peers. So much of what is wrong with this book feels like it is because of that weight pressing on the author--but it is a book that should not be ignored or forgotten.The story is simple--a beautiful couple mixed in the world of fame, art, love and hope Him a world famous painter and her a world rek [...]

    19. 1.5 starsThank God I finally finished this book. The background story sounded very interesting but Zelda's writing style is just not for me. I don't like elaborate prose, and if you can say something about Zelda's writing it's that it is very elaborate. She uses elaborate comparisons which often didn't make any sense to me (but maybe that's because I just don't like that kind of writing) and she uses them a lot, sometimes even two or three in one sentence. I felt that in the later parts of the b [...]

    20. I hope Zelda Fitzgerald found that writing this book was a valuable and rewarding experience; I can't say that I found reading it was.Several reviewers have mentioned that Zelda's style is verbose and convoluted, but she does use several styles in the book and the rampant verbosity becomes less prevalent as the story progresses. The overblown metaphors and strings of similes are the style and voice of a pretentious, self-obsessed, romantically inclined teenager. It is a style for readers who hav [...]

    21. The one and only novel written by Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, Save me the Waltz is the novel my very small book group chose for our July read. It is the book Zelda wrote during a period she spent in a Baltimore hospital to receive psychiatric treatment, while there she spent around two hours a day writing as a part of a daily routine to aid her recovery. The book was written in just a few weeks and to be absolutely honest it shows. Both Harry T Moore who wrote the introduction printed in this editio [...]

    22. Poor thing. Poor, poor thing. Zelda had such a wonderfully, dismally, perfectly sad life, that was absolutely filled with her optimistic outlook and biting wit. I loved the part of her childhood, where she was so conniving and so intent on catching everyone out. She was not just a literary curio, she was a literary Queen. Heralded only as the wife of Scott Fitzgerald, Zelda deserves far more a substantial place on the pantheon. It was, however, a trial to read at times. Her words flow slightly c [...]

    23. I don't think I understood one darn thing about this book. I wish I did. I feel like I'm missing something given all the positive reviews of the book. I don't understand a darn thing about Alabama, David and Bonnie. I took notes and everything but all I know is that a free spirit girl married a man who left her feeling uninspired and had a child even though she probably had no business being a mother. Then she decided late in life to be a ballet dancer, tore up her body, and never really lived o [...]

    24. When I went through my phase with the Fitzgeralds and friends, this was impossible to find unless you were willing to drop $50 on a long out-of-print used paperback. I felt like I 'owed' it to that version of myself to finally read it now that it is, deservedly, much easier to come by, but it only makes clear how far from that self I've wandered. Now, without any particular romantic or tragic feelings about it, much of it is just a slog. The prose is dreamy almost to the point of sheer nonsense, [...]

    25. Although this work is fiction, it shows Zelda's values in her life in my view. Alabama struggled with being a wife and mother but was passionate about dance. I felt sad for Bonnie to be so disconnected from her parents. The relationship between Alabama and David was always full of tension. David clearly loved Alabama, but he had a hard time understanding her needs and how those needs fit into their lives as a couple.The overall story was interesting, but I had a hard time with Zelda's writing st [...]

    26. Review originally posted on The Beauty of LiteratureThose of you that follow me on Tumblr will know that I have been obsessed with The Lost Generation authors. In the never ending search of a thesis topic, I have now decided to focus on them and first up is Zelda Fitzgerald - a woman I've read so much about, but never read what she wrote. And thankfully I decided to change that.Save Me the Waltz is the mostly autobiographical story of Zelda, represented by the main character Alabama, from her ch [...]

    27. Ressenya completa ací: luckybuke/2017/02/reseZelda Fitzgerald, injustament coneguda solament per ser la dona de Francis Scott Fitzgerald i per ser una flapper mig boja i amb tendències alcohòliques, era molt més que això. Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald tenia una creativitat desbordant, que es va veure representada en la dansa, en la pintura i en aquesta novel·la: una descripció intimista i diferent dels feliços anys vint i de la cerca del lloc que la protagonista (alter-ego de l'escriptora) ocup [...]
