Considered to be F. Scott Fitzgerald’s greatest work, The Great Gatsby is a vivid and timely portrait of the allure and dangerous excess of Jazz Age. The novel follows narrator Nick Carraway, newly arrived to the town of West Egg, Long Island, as his life becomes intertwined with that of Jay Gatsby, his rich and enigmatic neighbour. What ensues is a tale of thwarted love and tragedy as Fitzgerald explores the hollowness of materialism and the corruption of the American Dream.

Also includes the short story, Winter Dreams which explores similar themes to The Great Gatsby.

One of the foremost writers of the twentieth century, the work of Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896–1940) is synonymous with the artistic innovation and giddy excess of the roaring twenties. Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Fitzgerald grew up on the fringes of the city’s social elite, keenly aware of wealth, privilege, and his own exclusion from high society. This class consciousness would inform the themes of many of his works, most famously The Great Gatsby.
