Bernice Bobs Her Hair

Bright Young Things Episode 3 of 3

And now the second of our stories celebrating the riotous, cocktail-swilling, 'Bright Young Things' of the interwar years. Laurel Lefkow reads F Scott Fitzgerald's classic Jazz Age tale set in 1920s California, 'Bernice Bobs her Hair', in which revenge comes in the shape of a daring new hairstyle.

F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of 'The Beautiful and the Damned', 'Tender is the Night' and 'The Great Gatsby', is regarded as one of the twentieth century's greatest writers. His stories epitomised the Jazz Age, which he defined as a 'generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken'.

Written by F Scott Fitzgerald
Read by Laurel Lefkow
Abridged by Richard Hamilton
