The only child of Zelda Fitzgerald and novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald, she was a writer and a journalist and a prominent member of the U.S. Democratic Party. Her mother supposedly remarked upon her birth that she was glad to have borne a girl and that she hoped she would be a "beautiful little fool." In her father's novel, "The Great Gatsby" (1925), Daisy Buchanan says this of her young daughter. She is the subject of the biography, "Scottie, The Daughter of . . . : The Life of Frances Scott Fitzgerald Lanahan Smith," which was written by her daughter Eleanor Lanahan.
