F. Scott Fitzgerald's mother came from an immigrant family that did really well in the grocery business. And when he was seventeen years old, Fitzgerald wound up going to Princeton. Sound like anyone we know? (Source, v.)

Fitzgerald wrote about his own first novel, This Side of Paradise (1920), "I really believe that no one else could have written so searchingly the story of the youth of our generation." Wow. Arrogant, much? (Source, vi.)
