"In The Pat Hobby Stories Scott Fitzgerald took a wryly self-mocking look at himself in his role as Hollywood hack (and fading literary celebrity). Pat Hobby is the seediest of them all, they once-talented charmer, reduced (for instance) to showing tourists the homes of movie stars who won't talk to him any more. Hobby's antics are sad and hilarious – and essential reading for all Fitzgerald and admirers." -- from the rear panel blurb.
