Geneva mentioned in this book













When I was in Toronto last month, a friend pointed out that Geneva, NY is mentioned in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night.   I have never read this book, so I had to ask for help in finding the Geneva reference (thanks KP!).  Here is a little blurb from the end of the novel about Dick Diver’s final days:

“After that he didn’t ask for the children to be sent to America and didn’t answer when Nicole wrote asking him if he needed money. In the last letter she had from him he told her that he was practising in Geneva, New York, and she got the impression that he had settled down with someone to keep house for him. She looked up Geneva in an atlas and found it was in the heart of the Finger Lakes section and considered a pleasant place.”
