Fitzgerald's classic tale of jazz-era New York and the mysterious, party-throwing millionaire Jay Gatsby.
Born in 1896, Fitzgerald was considered a member of the 'Lost Generation', along with Steinbeck, T.S. Eliot and Waldo Peirce. His novels epitomize the Jazz Age - a term he coined himself - and The Great Gatsby is often considered as 'the great American novel'.
Written almost 100 years ago, this is a sharply-observed and clearly written novel, as relevant today as it must have always been. * TELEGRAPH & ARGUS *
