The Great Gatsby

by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Literary Fiction Modern and Contemporary Fiction

The Great Gatsby Synopsis

Published to coincide with the 124th anniversary of F. Scott Fitzgerald's birth

Enigmatic, intriguing and fabulously wealthy, Jay Gatsby throws lavish parties at his West Egg mansion to impress Daisy Buchanan, the object of his obsession, now married to bullish Tom Buchanan.

Over a Long Island summer, his neighbour Nick Carraway, a writer and a cousin to Daisy, looks on as Gatsby and Daisy’s affair deepens.

Tragedy looms in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, frequently named among the best novels of the twentieth century.

This new edition includes a foreword by critically acclaimed novelist Michael Farris Smith, as well as an exclusive extract of his forthcoming novel, NICK, which imagines narrator Nick Carraway’s life before The Great Gatsby.
