What F Scott Fitzgerald said


Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones (Rollin Binzer, 1973).

'You know what F Scott Fitzgerald said, don't you?' David mutters as I flop down beside him on a couch.
'No,' I say, 'I don't know what F Scott Fitzgerald said.'
'He said that everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness.'

from Mick Jagger, by J Marks (Abacus, 1973).
