About the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald is often referred to as one of the single-most important authors in modern history. His "Lost Generation" contemporaries included the likes Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, and other literary giants. At the age of 24, he published This Side of Paradise, which catapulted him to fame. A week later, he married Zelda Sayre, the love of his life, with whom he would spend the remainder of his days in an often-tumultuous but legendary romance. Throughout his career, he penned hundreds of short stories as well as classic books like Tender is the Night, The Beautiful and the Damned, and the widely successful Great Gatsby. He died at the age of 44 from a heart attack, after losing a long-term battle with alcoholism.

Reviews

Praise for The Great Gatsby

"A curious book, a mystical, glamourous story of today." --The New York Times

"One of the most quintessentially American novels ever written." ―Time

"The American masterwork, the finest work of fiction by any of this country's writers." ―The Washington Post

"Leaves the reader in a mood of chastened wonder . . . A revelation of life . . . A work of art." --Los Angeles Times

"A remarkable book. . . . It has interested and excited me more than any new novel I have seen, either English or American, for a number of years. . . . . It seems to me to be the first step that American fiction has taken since Henry James." --T.S. Eliot.

"There are many novels which claim that they are the greatest love story of all time. It is only in the case of this novel that that statement can be applied and be true." --The Guardian

"Fascinating . . . His style fairly scintillates, and with a genuine brilliance; he writes surely and soundly." --New York Post

"Were you to lay this thing out by the sentence, it'd be as close as an array of words could get to strands of pearls. "The cab stopped at one slice in a long white cake of apartment-houses"? That line alone is almost enough to make me quit typing for the rest of my life." --The Paris Review
