Definitive novel of the "Lost Generation" focuses on the coming of age of Amory Blaine, a handsome, wealthy Princeton student. He exemplifies the young men and women of the 20s who grew up to find "all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken." Fitzgerald's first novel and an immediate, spectacular success.
The book that established Fitzgerald's reputation as the chronicler of a doomed generation of young Americans between the wars. Amory Blaine resolves to rebel against his staid, mid-western upbringing and to gain a a patina of east coast sophistication: in his quest for sexual and intellectual enlightenment he embarks on a series of relationships through which he learns that money cannot buy love, before he finds himself cast adrift in the real world.
