The Diamond as Big as the Ritz

The Diamond as Big as the Ritz


by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


"The Diamond as Big As the Ritz" does feature a love story, but it's the story of first love – i.e., googly eyes across the rosebushes in the garden of youth and innocence. It's a big deal when our adorable couple kisses for the first time, so don't expect to see any sex. Of course, there are plenty of death-threats and explosions to go around, so if it's excitement you're after, fear not.
