This is Cary Ross in 1932, aged 29.  
He was a Yale educated poet, published in several literary magazines and friends with Zelda and F. Scot Fitzgerald.  He also owned an art gallery in New York City and exhibited some of Zelda’s art work and tried to out-drink F. Scott…and lost.  Once when Zelda thought she had upset him she promised to make him a “pink and dreamy picture” and he in turn write a poem for the couple entitled “Seashores in the Sun for the Scott Fitzgeralds”   
He travelled to Paris, Germany, and Russia, writing, socialising, and translating Rilke,  He spent time with Gertrude Stein, Virgil Thompson, Georgia O’Keefe, and the Cone Sisters of Baltimore among many others.  
He was there for the start of the Museum of Modern Art working closely with Alfred Barr, and believed in the cultural significance of museums, donated art work from several famous artists to museums across the US.  
A true intellectual and an artist, he spent his short life with some of the greatest, most famous names of the 1920s and 30s.

When Franz Liszt came up, I instantly recognized it from one of my copies of Dorian Gray (who I also have a crush on). I wonder who’s idea in Barnes and Noble’s marketing department was, “You know, I know the perfect guy for the cover.” Huh.
