O'Nan Reads From 'West of Sunset' at Point Park

Beth Navarro

This year marks the 90th anniversary of the publication of "The Great Gatsby" – the height of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary fame. But a new novel suggests that some of Fitzgerald’s best work came much later, at a time of loss and personal struggle.

Its author, Pittsburgh native Stewart O’Nan, will read from"West of Sunset" Wednesday evening at Point Park University, where he's teaching a master class in fiction writing.

90.5 WESA’s Josh Raulerson spoke with O’Nan about Fitzgerald’s career as a Hollywood screenwriter during the final years of his life.
