    The Beautiful and Damned and Other Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and Damned explores the world of America's upper class during World War I and the beginning of the Jazz Age. Loosely based on Fitzgerald's relationship with his wife, Zelda, the novel centers around Anthony Patch, a young East Coast socialite who is heir to his grandfather's fortune and lacks motivation to pursue a meaningful career.

    The Enormous Room by e e cummings

Cummings spent three months in a French prison. From this experience came "The Enormous Room", a prose account of life in a military prison that contains no traces of bitterness or self-pity commonly found in such works. Instead, Cummings looked at the daily life and the strange characters in the enormous room with the playful eye and original wit so often apparent in his poems. Readers will delight in this early work by one of America's most unique literary voices.
