Winter Dreams

Winter Dreams

by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Lud Simms

Character Analysis

Lud Simms is Devlin's best friend and the man whom Judy Jones has married by the end of "Winter Dreams." We never get to see him directly, but we can't help but think that he's bad news when even his friend describes him as having "gone to pieces in a way" (6.9). Devlin tells Dexter that Lud Simms drinks too much and sleeps around on Judy. As for Judy, she has grown older; she remains at home with the kids while her husband fools around.
