Zelda Fitzgerald is the subject of four new novels that are coming out this year, one of which focuses on her time in a Baltimore mental institution.

Erika Robuck's "Call Me Zelda", which comes out in May, is narrated by a nurse who cares for F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife.

"The novel tackles one of the most contentious issues in the Fitzgeralds' marriage —their fight over who had the right to fictionalize their relationship," the Wall Street Journal writes.

The Journal also writes that Zelda wrote her own novel on her troubled marriage to the Jazz Age "Great Gatsby" writer while hospitalized for schizophrenia.
