The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald's portrait of the Jazz Age in all its decadence and excess, is, as editor Maxwell Perkins praised it in 1924, a wonder. It remains one of the most widely read, translated, admired, imitated, and studied 20th-century works of American fiction.

This deceptively simple work, Fitzgerald's best known, was hailed by critics as capturing the spirit of the generation. In Jay Gatsby, Fitzgerald embodies some of America's strongest obsessions: wealth, power, greed, and the promise of new beginnings.

This recording includes a selection of letters written by Fitzgerald to his editor, Maxwell Perkins, his agent, Harold Ober, and friends and associates, including Willa Cather, H.L. Mencken, John Peale Bishop, and Gertrude Stein. Download and start listening now!

    " Typically I'm a Debbie downer when I read classics. But I love this book. I'm glad I finally got to read it. "

    " I liked it better than I did in high school, but I still don't get what makes it classic. It's tragic, and has pathetic (literary term: flawed) characters, but I don't think that's anything new, even 100 years ago. "

    " My first experience with reading The Great Gatsby was in my high school English class. And I hated this book with a passion, I hated it. I decided to give it another shot, I admit the movie convinced me, to see if it was a hate produced by having to pick apart and dissect the book, or just because I didn't like it. This attempt went a little better. Once the story picked up (as much as it was going to) I found I didn't hate it, but this will never be one of my favorites or high on the like list. Tom drove me nuts with his meddling and idol worship of Gatsby and Daisy is one of the most, if not the most, shallow characters in literature. The only reason this book got three stars from me was due to the symbolism. "

    " This book was fairly entertaining, but I believe that ending was not as strong I thought it would have been. The ending really left me lacking as soon as I finished, but the book was still good. "
