House Rules

"After one of their brawls Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda formeda set of house rules which were only partly facetious; 'Visitors arerequested not to break down doors in search of liquor, even when authorised to do so by the host and hostess. Weekend guests are respectfuty notified that invitations to stay over Monday, issued bythe host and hostess during the small hours of Sunday morning, mustnot be taken seriously.'"

[Zelda's writing was also a source of friction. She once wrote: "Mr. Fitzgerald -- I believe that is how he spells his name -- seems to believe that plagiarism begins at home."]
