9780140623239: The Great Gatsby

Jay Gatsby is the man who has everything. But one thing will always be out of his reach ... Everybody who is anybody is seen at his glittering parties. Day and night his Long Island mansion buzzes with bright young things drinking, dancing and debating his mysterious character. For Gatsby - young, handsome, fabulously rich - always seems alone in the crowd, watching and waiting, though no one knows what for. Beneath the shimmering surface of his life he is hiding a secret: a silent longing that can never be fulfilled. And soon this destructive obsession will force his world to unravel.

About the Author:

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (born September 24, 1896 – died December 21, 1940) was a writer of novels and short stories. He is widely regarded as one of the twentieth century's greatest writers. However, neither he nor this book were so highly regarded in his lifetime. The Great Gatsby was not popular upon initial printing, selling fewer than 25,000 copies during the remaining fifteen years of Fitzgerald's life. Many copies remained unsold when Fitzgerald died in 1940 and he had been largely forgotten. Many of his obituaries mentioned Gatsby as evidence that he had great potential that he never reached. After his death interest in this novel developed. Three movie versions have been made as well as numerous TV shows. Perhaps the timeless themes of love and betrayal, of men and women ignoring the bonds of marriage and seeking new and re-seeking old lovers, have brought this to the fore, not to mention the tragic end.
