The Great Gatsby

Available

Description

A true classic of twentieth-century literature, this edition has been updated by Fitzgerald scholar James L.W. West III to include the author's final revisions and features a note on the composition and text, a personal foreword by Fitzgerald's granddaughter, Eleanor Lanahan--and a new introduction by two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward.

Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read.

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald's third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. First published in 1925, this quintessential novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession," it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

About the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald, de son nom complet Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, né le 24 septembre 1896 à Saint Paul (Minnesota) et mort le 21 décembre 1940, est l'un des plus grands écrivains américains du XXe siècle. Chef de file de la Génération perdue et émouvant représentant de L'Ère du Jazz, il est aussi celui qui lance la carrière d'Ernest Hemingway. Il se marie avec Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, alors exubérante fille du Sud, en 1920. Celle-ci publie un roman autobiographique (Accordez-moi cette valse) en 1932, et elle est une source d'inspiration constante pour son mari. Ensemble, ils ont une fille, Frances Scott Fitzgerald, qu'ils surnomment « Scottie ».

Reviews

James Dickey Now we have an American masterpiece in its final form: the original crystal has shaped itself into the true diamond. This is the novel as Fitzgerald wished it to be, and so it is what we have dreamed of, sleeping and waking
