The Great Gatsby

Pre-Order   Ships Jan 01, 2021


The Great Gatsby is F. Scott Fitzgerald's great American novel; sublime, deftly written, at times wickedly funny, and always tightly under control by a master of the language who was at the top of his powers. In Gatsby, Fitzgerald explored the Jazz Age with an intimate knowledge and perception that no other writer could have matched. Much of the happenings in the novel are pulled directly from Fitzgerald's own hedonistic experiences. A cautionary tale about reaching for the American Dream and being crushed by it. No one is certain where Gatsby's money comes from, but they are all willing to help him spend it. He yearns to reconnect with his lost love Daisy Buchanan, but is there any place for him in her world?
