Staff Reviews


A jewel of a book, and Fitzgerald's finest hour--a mystery that reveals everything you need to know about wealth, power and disappointment in America. Even if you never read anything ever again, read this.

— Charles Bottomley

"In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars."

The reward of mystery comes from the thrill its journey brings, the discovery of that which is greatly unknown, and the realization that the well goes deeper and deeper, not into the characters, but into ourselves. More satisfying than most new fiction, Fitzgerald breathlessly relates his yarn of high society intrigue through the dark glass of human loneliness--and all under 200 pages. — Alex Bell

Gatsby's obsession to recreate the past in a culture of obscene wealth, shady ethics, adultery, and violence is eternally vivid, sharp, and surprising. Gatsby's beautiful dream to reverse time was doomed, but his story, and Fitzgerald's gorgeous lyricism, is timeless. — Mike Hare

Description


The only authorized mass market edition of the twentieth-century classic, featuring F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final revisions, a foreword by his granddaughter, and a new introduction by National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward.

This edition of The Great Gatsby has been updated by F. Scott 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 an introduction by two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward. Featuring the iconic original cover art, this is a must-have for students and Gatsby fans.

The Great Gatsby, 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 is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

About the Author


F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1896. He attended Princeton University, joined the United States Army during World War I, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. That same year he married Zelda Sayre and for the next decade the couple lived in New York, Paris, and on the Riviera. Fitzgerald’s masterpieces include The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night. He died at the age of forty-four while working on The Last Tycoon. Fitzgerald’s fiction has secured his reputation as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century.
