Description

A gorgeous new edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece, with an introduction by Melina Marchetta.
All the bright young things go to Jay Gatsby's Long Island parties. Yet Gatsby himself is reserved and mysterious. He seems always to be waiting for something or someone. When he finally draws the beautiful Daisy Buchanan back into his orbit, he sets in motion a series of tragedies.
And F. Scott Fitzgerald gives us what many consider to be the greatest American novel a crystalline portrait of a society captivated by status and ambition, and a man doomed in love.
 

Reviews

'Reading it now for the seventh or eighth time, I am more convinced than ever not merely that it is Fitzgerald's masterwork but that it is the American masterwork, the finest work of fiction by any of this country's writers... If from all of our country's books I could have only one, The Great Gatsby would be it.' - Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post
