YMMV: Tender Is the Night
- Freud Was Right: Read this novel with the Electra complex in mind and you will become twice as squicked out.
- Vindicated by History: Many critics disliked the novel's use of Anachronic Order on its first release, prompting Fitzgerald's plan to revise the entire work into a more conventional chronological narrative. This edition was completed by Malcolm Cowley after Fitzgerald's death and released in 1951 - by which time critics had warmed up to the original edition of the book. Cowley's version is now held in lesser esteem than the original.
