Fitzgerald’s glittering Jazz Age masterpiece

Jay Gatsby is a self-made man, famed for his decadent champagne-drenched parties. Despite being surrounded by Long Island’s bright and beautiful, Gatsby longs only for Daisy Buchanan. In shimmering prose, Fitzgerald shows Gatsby pursue his dream to its tragic conclusion. The Great Gatsby is an elegiac and exquisite portrait of the American Dream.

About the Author

      "One of the greatest works of American literature...a timeless evocation of the allure, corruption and carelessness of wealth."
      "-- The Times

      ""It is a marvellously suggestive novel... a parable of modern America, and by extension of modern life."
      --A. N. Wilson", Daily Telegraph

      ""The first and greatest modern novel, it has beautiful women, lavish parties, romance, betrayal and murder woven together in an intricately structured plot. A prescient comment on the dying days of a gilded age that is brilliant entertainment with a very eloquent insight"."
      --Mirror
