David Ulin on Frances Kroll Ring

I'm not going to lie to you; I'd love to keep the Ramparts blurbs front and center for as long as possible. But today a David Ulin piece on Frances Kroll Ring swam into my ken, and I can't resist.

Fanatical readers of this blog will recall my telephone conversation with Frances, her book (Against the Current), and the film based on her experience (Last Call), where she was played memorably by Neve Campbell.

What? You don't recall? Frances was F. Scott Fitzgerald's secretary and later edited Carey McWilliams for Westways. Good God, people, pull it together. Maybe these links will jog your memory.

Ms. Ring's recollections of her Fitzgerald years appeared in Esquire magazine sometime during the 1960's.
I know this for a fact because I read most of the essay at the Burbank (CA)Central Library, where it was archivally stored in a very thick bound volume.

I would love to comment further on this if you so desire.
