'The Jazz Age chronicler's first great novel.' - The Times
'No one has written more elegiacally about America than F. Scott Fitzgerald...a sense of lost time and the irretrievability of the past gave much of his work - indeed, his life - an ineradicable undertone of mourning.' - Guardian
'If Francis Scott Fitzgerald had not existed, it would have been necessary to invent him. Seldom has there been a character who personified, as well as chronicled, an age with such dexterity and verisimilitude.' - Sunday Times
'None was more beautiful, none more damned, than Fitzgerald himself.' - Independent on Sunday
