The Flapper Is Growing Stronger Than Ever

ZeldaThe flapper is growing stronger than ever; she gets wilder all the time… She is continuously seeking for something new to increase her store of experience. She is still looking for new conventions to break– for new thrills, for sensations to add zest to life, and she is growing more and more terrible.

– F. Scott Fitzgerald, in BF Wilson’s “F. Scott Fitzgerald says: ‘All Women Over Thirty-Five Should Be Murdered,'” Metropolitan Magazine 58 (November 1923)
