COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A peek into the life of author F. Scott Fitzgerald is now available online, just weeks before the opening of the movie "The Great Gatsby."
Researchers at the University of South Carolina's Thomas Cooper Library have put a digital version of the author's handwritten financial ledger on their website.
The 200-page book is a throwback to life before computer spreadsheets, providing a firsthand record of the author's earnings from his many short stories, books, and adaptations for stage and screen.
