ABOUT THIS BOOK

Jay Gatsby is living the American dream: he has earned millions of dollars, lives in a sprawling gothic mansion and throws lavish parties every Saturday night. Yet, away from the excesses, the champagne glasses and the uniformed waiters, his heart yearns for Daisy Buchanan, a former flame.
Daisy lives close by, sharing an unhappy marriage with the wealthy, adulterous Tom Buchanan. Fed up with her husband’s transgressions, Daisy rekindles her romance with Gatsby. The situation quickly unravels: there is a showdown in a Manhattan hotel room and a catastrophic car accident, which irretrievably shatter the brittle illusions of their lives.
The Great Gatsby is easily F. Scott Fitzgerald’s best-known work. Counted as one of the ‘Great American Novels’, it remains one of the most stunning portraits of a resurgent, post-World War I America.
