    One thought on “Primo maggio

    1. Faran

      A very interesting and relevant story, brilliantly written, in which poor people drink with their enemies and then attack their own well-wishers, and rich people prioritize champagne with breakfast over helping friends in serious trouble. I think everyone should read this. It will give you a memorable intellectual reference point for any time you take a look at society/politics.

    2. Jake Leech

      Look, we all know that Fitzgerald can knock out a story, so let's just assume that this is pretty well written. The blurb says that this is Fitzgerald's most overtly political story, and I buy that. What I wasn't expecting is how current it felt--reading May Day was exactly like watching old episodes of West Wing. I kept thinking, Oh, this is still an issue today! Obviously the details have changed. We have fewer socialist Rabbis yelling in the streets, for example (I think. I haven't been to Ne [...]

      An interesting read. I was easily and quickly pulled in at the beginning. It is clearly a Fitzgerald book based with his very clear and distinctive way of describing people and settings. It goes through the course of two days with a cast of people. (Almost) each chapter switches to a new character after having passed/had an interaction with a previous chapter. I enjoyed it because I don't often read novellas. The ending was much more abrupt and sadder than I had expected or anticipated. This boo [...]

      Review initially published on my blog, Writing by Numbers,here.It has come to my attention that some people understand the word “decadent” to be a purely positive term, mostly reserved for chocolate cake. If that’s you, get your hands on some Fitzgerald, stat.Folks, decadence isn’t just luxury. It’s both a wild party and the wreckage afterwards, it’s the rust behind the gilt. Nobody brings this concept to life better than Fitzgerald. His works, like The Great Gatsby and Tales of the [...]

    5. Perry Whitford

      Silk shirts and suicide, the perfect complimentary items for an F. Scott Fitzgerald story.May Day, 1919 was a tumultuous one for America with riots breaking out and the discovery of an anarchist plot to mail-bomb a cross-section of prominent politicians. The country was euphoric that the war was over, but while the future looked bright for some it didn't look so appealing for others.Fitzgerald taps into the hysteria as the 'Smart Set' of Yale graduates and moneyed 'flappers' dance the night away [...]

    6. HRH

      A novella based happenings in an Ohio town, but this story interweaves several plot lines in New York City. It's meshes together so well, in a style I feel like no one did until the 2000s. The characters feel like Fitzgerald's usually do - some reach, some very poor, some ex-soldiers, some beautiful, bored girls, and always, in true style, saying so much without coming out and just saying it. Fitzgerald really is a portrait artist. He doesn't tell you what to think or feel or understand, he just [...]

    7. Melville House Publishing

      This beautifully packaged series of classic novellas includes the works of Anton Chekhov, Colette, Henry James, Herman Melville, and Leo Tolstoy. These collectible editions are the first single-volume publications of these classic tales, offering a closer look at this underappreciated literary form and providing a fresh take on the world's most celebrated authors.

    8. Shana

      In questo racconto emergono tutti i temi ricorrenti nei libri di Fitzgerald: musica, alcool, denaro, eccessi. Il racconto prende le mosse dal ricordo, che viene, però, ben presto abbandonato nel turbinio del presente vissuto dai personaggi. Si tratta di un libro intenso, dal ritmo incalzante e imprevedibile.

    9. Charles Northey

      I had always been a bit wary of Fitzgerald's short stories; a bit too long, a bit too wordy and a bit too dated- thank god I got over that! This story is by turns funny, tragic, critical and caustic. If you want to put a wry smile on a beautiful day read this- but read with caution because it could leave scars on you outlook and soul.

    10. Sergio Calderón

      I bet Fitzgerald wrote this short novel while he was drinking an entire bottle of bad liquor. Characters seems like all the same. However, this is the first Fitzgerald's ambitious project ever. He tried, at least his narrative improved with this exercise.

    11. Tempo de Ler

      Em May Day saltamos de perspetiva em perspetiva, escoltando personagens com experiências de vida muito diferentes, reunidas no desorientado e eufórico ambiente do pós-guerra, no início dos anos 20. Embora encare o futuro com entusiasmo, a sociedade norte-americana está mudada, os rapazes que partiram para a guerra já não são as mesmas pessoas, a instabilidade política é agravada pelo confronto de ideias e receio pela infiltração comunista, resultando em tumulto e protesto. Os soldado [...]

    12. Lisa

      The first book in my self-imposed novella-a-day challenge was F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1920 novel, May Day. This novel lacks a lot of the finesse that is so obvious in Gatsby, for example, but I think it’s a lot more refined and readable than, say, This Side of Paradise, which I found too apologetic and juvenile. This skinny book is about postwar despair and the conflict between the rich, moneyed classes and those who have fallen below that level of luxury. The Roaring Twenties have just begun. [...]

    13. Maryjmetz

      Another novella in theMelville House novella series, "May Day" is rather different from "Parnassus on Wheels." The opening couple of pages are an excellent bit of bitter fantasy: But no one listened to their great outcry, for the throngs were far too busy--day by day, the foot-soldiers trod jauntily the highway and all exulted because the young men returning were pure and brave, sound of tooth and pink of cheek, and the young women of the land were virgins and comely both of face and of figure. [...]

      Reason for Reading: I've decided to try the club for 6 months and plan to read the two selections, the month following their arrival. Hence this is my January read.I've read several of Fitzgerald's novels and short stories and find him an interesting author. This title was new for me and I looked forward to reading it. The story is explained as a sample of American class systems but I'm not sure I agree with that. Class structure doesn't really exist in America the same way it does in Britain wh [...]

    15. Aaron

      What can I say, F. Scott Fitzgerald is just so relaxing to read. There is something mesmerizing about his writing. The same goes for Ernest Hemingway. But both of them can just write about the most innocuous things, yet I will voraciously read it, speedily I might add, and thoroughly enjoy it. Yet after it being read, I realize I only just read about a couple guys talking about everyday things doing everyday stuff, nothing exciting. Yet Fitzgerald makes it engrossing. The flow of the conversatio [...]

    16. Joe

      I was struck as I read this story by its similarity to the writing of J.D. Salinger, and the ending to May Day only confirmed the resemblance, partiularly to Salinger's early post-war story A Perfect Day for Bananafish. Though the different storylines in May Day run around each other in a fairly confusing fashion at first, they come together in climactic conjunction around halfway through the story. The second half of the story is pretty sparse writing, more in the style of Hemingway, Ernest, bu [...]

    17. Ian Ryan

      If I wanted to introduce someone to the styles and themes of Fitzgerald without having them overwhelmed by too large a book (The Great Gatsby isn't huge by any means, but significantly larger than this bite-sized novella), I would recommend May Day. It has the same fluent, arabesque prose that Fitzgerald is known for, as well as the social commentary in regards to class identities within post-WWI America, The Jazz Age, etc. The story whirls from person to person as chapters go by, and the way Fi [...]

    18. Renee

      Read for school. A story very representative of post-WWI, early '20s America, featuring a variety of characters including former soldiers in search of liquor, a desperate boy in need of help, a vile young girl demanding money, a flapper bouncing from boy to boy, and the completely hammered Mr. In and Mr. Out. Around 50 pages long, the story switches between perspectives, which makes it move faster than most of Fitzgerald's shorter works. There is lots of slang and each character, though only int [...]

    19. Rebecca Timberlake

      I had a hard time reading this, and it took me several days to push through. If you know me, you know how absolutely absurd that sounds. I devour F. Scott Fitzgerald. I consume him like air or water. but don't mistake my meaning. I enjoyed this, as much as one can enjoy this particular story, but it was tough. It's a side of Fitzgerald readers don't get much- it seemed personal and, yeah, maybe a little angry. He has a brief introduction at the beginning (of my copy, at least) where he states it [...]

    20. Bert

      'Dit is geen verslag van de veranderingen van de stad maar van de veranderingen in het gevoel van deze schrijver over de stad,' schrijft Fitzgerald in het essay Mijn verdwenen stad. 'We hadden een boel meegemaakt, al hadden we een bijna theatrale onschuld behouden door de rol van geobserveerde te prefereren boven die van observator. Maar onschuld is geen doel op zich en terwijl onze geest tegen wil en dank rijper werd, begonnen we New York te zien zoals het was en probeerden er iets van te bewar [...]

    21. Amrita Basu

      Being a sincere admirer of Fitzgerald , I am pained to say that this story didn't really live up to my expectations , and on the contrary, left me somewhat disappointed with the abrupt and dramatic ending . I could see glimpses of the beautiful author that he was to become in the later years here and there in this novella , but could not really feel for the characters much . I was much intrigued by the premise of this novel , and the first chapter gave me much promise of another beautifully haun [...]

    22. Ben

      F. Scott Fitzgerald has arrived, folks. And I don't think he has any intention of leaving. "May Day" was superb in just about every way a literary piece should be; beautiful language, clear tone and effective yet concise character development. At times, I thought it would make a good stage presentation; with the intermingling of characters who didn't always have the same level of relations with one another but were caught together in a web by hidden links. Each character presented a particular a [...]

    23. Gabriel

      This is the first multi-focused story by Scott Fitzgerald with a bigger amount of characters than the usual; "his first great novella".(view spoiler)[It is although mostly concentrated on Gordon Sterrett's life - a young student at Yale who is experiencing big financial issues and tries to get help from his friend, Dean. This leads to another plot thread - the events of Dean and his friend Peter (later Mr In and Mr Out). There are also presented the events of Edith - a young, rich woman who was [...]

    24. Joe

      Surprised this one isn't talked about more. It's his most cohesive work beside Gatsby. The same elements of opulence, regret and fatalism, but in different proportions. The slight political bent and the NYC setting gives it more of a foothold in reality, too. The doomed protagonist seems a little less ephemeral than Amory Blaine, and his foils exhibit a more subtle immortality. "Damn good looking. She's still sort of a pretty doll-you know what I mean: as if you'd touch her she'd smear." [9:]"To [...]

    25. Brian Yahn

      May Day had me hooked from the beginning. In a couple of pages, the story really gets going. The characters conflict with each other, and you know shit is about to get real And fast.The writing is great as expected. However, it's a little hard to follow at times. One character in particular has three nicknames, and because of POV changes, many times the characters are only mentioned by physical appearance. Definitely something that adds an unnecessary layer of complexity to a story--let's rememb [...]
