Product description

Review

"The Great Gatsby remains not just one of the greatest works of American literature, but a timeless evocation of the allure, corruption and carelessness of wealth...a gilded society intoxicated by wealth, dancing its way into the Great Depression." (The Times)

"Gatsby is a connoisseur's guide to the glamour and glitter of the Jazz Age, but it's also a nearly prophetic glimpse into the world to come. Writing at the height of the boom, in the midst of the Roaring Twenties, Fitzgerald detected the ephemerality, fakery and corruption always lurking at the heart of the great American success story... A haunting meditation on aspiration, disillusionment, romantic love - and a blistering exposé of the materialism, duplicity, and sexual politics driving what Fitzgerald calls America's true "business": "the service of a vast, vulgar, and meretricious beauty"" (Sarah Churchwell, The Times)

"It is a marvellously suggestive novel...a parable of modern America, and by extension of modern life" (AN Wilson, Daily Telegraph)

"The first and greatest modern novel, it has beautiful women, lavish parties, romance, betrayal and murder woven together in an intricately structured plot. A prescient comment on the dying days of a gilded age that is brilliant entertainment with a very eloquent insight" (Mirror)

"His masterpiece, an elegy for the American Dream, the greatest lost cause of them all" (Los Angeles Times)

Review

"One of the greatest works of American literature … a timeless evocation of the allure, corruption and carelessness of wealth." (The Times)

"A stunning illumination of the world ... not only a miracle of talent but a triumph of technique." (Aaron Beck, Psychiatrist)
