Twenty-one and no longer a debutante, Myra Harper suffers from the “calendar blues.” But, as a friend advises, there isn’t time to drift into romance, so she must instead “pick out the best thing in sight…and go after him hammer and tongs.”
“Myra Meets His Family” is typical of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s early commercial stories in terms of character, setting and theme, and although Fitzgerald feared it was no good, it sold it easily to The Saturday Evening Post for four hundred dollars, marking the author’s second appearance in the renowned magazine. Fox Film Corporation released the theatrical version of the story that same year titled The Husband Hunter, starring Eileen Percy.
