The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald,

The Great Gatsby
 
 

A gorgeous new edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece, with an introduction by Melina Marchetta

All the bright young things go to Jay Gatsby's Long Island parties. Yet Gatsby himself is reserved and mysterious. He seems always to be waiting for something or someone. When he finally draws the beautiful Daisy Buchanan back into his orbit, he sets in motion a series of tragedies. And F. Scott Fitzgerald gives us what many consider to be the greatest American novel - a crystalline portrait of a society captivated by status and ambition, and a man doomed in love.

Baz Lurhmann's spectacular film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, is due for release in Australia in 2013.

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul Minnesota, in 1896, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. His masterpieces include The Beautiful and the Damned and Tender is the Night. He died at the age of fourty-four. After his death, New York Times said that Fitzgerald 'was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a generation.'

Melina Marchetta is the bestselling author of Looking for Alibrandi and The Piper's Son.
