In 1932, Fitzgerald's wife Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald was hospitalized for schizophrenia in Baltimore, Maryland. The author rented the "la Paix" estate in the suburb of Towson to work on this book, the story of the rise and fall of Dick Diver, a promising young psychoanalyst and his wife, Nicole, who is also one of his patients. It would be Fitzgerald's first novel in nine years, and the last that he would complete. While working on the book he several times ran out of cash and had to borrow from his editor and agent, and write short stories for commercial magazines. The early 1930s, when Fitzgerald was conceiving and working on the book, were certainly the darkest years of his life, and accordingly, the novel has its bleak elements. Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald (July 24, 1900 - March 10, 1948), born Zelda Sayre in Montgomery, Alabama, was the wife of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, whom she married in 1920. ...

It should also be noted that two versions of this novel are in print. The first version, published in 1934, uses flashbacks whilst the second revised version, prepared by Fitzgerald's friend and noted critic Malcolm Cowley on the basis of notes for a revision left by Fitzgerald, is ordered chronologically; this version was first published posthumously in 1951. Critics have suggested that Cowley's revision was undertaken due to negative reviews of the temporal structure of the book on its first release.

Fitzgerald modeled the characters of Dick and Nicole Diver after his longtime friends, Gerald and Sara Murphy. The Murphys were a wealthy American expatriate couple who frequently entertained the Fitzgeralds and others of the Lost Generation at their home on the French Riviera. The Hotel d'Etrangers is based on the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc where the author stayed. Although the Divers possessed the glamour of the Murphys, the tragedy of the Divers' marriage more accurately reflected Fitzgerald's own marriage to his wife Zelda, and not that of the Murphys. Gerald and Sara Murphy were wealthy, expatriate Americans who moved to the French Riviera in the early 20th century and who, with their generous hospitality and flair for parties, created a vibrant social circle particularly in the 1920s that included a great number of artists and writers of the Lost...
