The basil and josephine stories are a collection of two separate short stories collections one about basil duke lee the other about josephine perry by f scott fitzgerald which initially ran serially in the saturday evening post . I knew the basil and josephine stories well before that as a kid in the 1950s the library that i spent many an hour in was divided as they are in most libraries even today into childrens and adults sections. The basil section was much more interesting than the josephine section which is too bad because i was looking forward to a good girl coming of age story i guess ill just have to stick to ramona quimby. Fourteen of f scott fitzgeralds best loved and most beguiling stories together in a single volume in 1928 while struggling with his novel tender is the night fitzgerald began writing a series of stories about basil duke lee a fictionalized version of his younger self. Basil and josephine charts the coming of age of two privileged youths from quiet midwestern towns basil duke lee and josephine perry based on fitzgerald himself and a combination of his first love ginevra king and his wife zelda as one struggles to gain the acceptance of his peers and becomes consumed by ambition
