'No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man can store up in his ghostly heart.'
Nicki Greenberg's adaptation of The Great Gatsby is breathtaking - a wonderful homage to F. Scott Fitzgerald's jazz-age classic that brings to life the glitter, the melancholy and the grand and crumpled dreams of Fitzgerald's unforgettable characters. In the exquisitely realised setting of 1920s New York, a throng of fantastical creatures play out the drama, the wry humour and the tragedy of the novel.
'Bizarre, absorbing and very funny ... a bold idea that works to great effect.' Shaun Tan
'The novel is a wonder ... it has vitality to an extraordinary degree and glamour, and a great deal of underlying thought of unusual quality... it is astonishing.' - Max Perkins, editor, in a letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald on reading the original draft of The Great Gatsby, 1924
