Publisher Description

When The Great Gatsby was published, commercially it was a failure but critically it was a success. It is still the most admired and well read of all Scott Fitzgerald’s novels, and it is considered a handbook of the Jazz Age. Scott Fitzgerald put much of himself and his life into the book. He created the character of Jay Gatsby to illustrate his own experiences of the illusory and morally bankrupt aspects of 1920s America, and the character of Nick Carraway to show his disapproval of its destructive effects.
