Nick Carraway, a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and extravagent lifestyle of his neighbour, Jay Gatsby.

Jay Gatsby is a self-made man famed for his decadent, champagne-drenched parties. Despite being surrounded by Long Island's bright and beautiful, he longs only for Daisy Buchanan. Gatsby pursues his dream and Nick Carraway is drawn into Gatsby's circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy.

Reviews

He had one of the rarest qualities in all literature - charm. It's not a matter of pretty writing or clear style. It's a kind of subdued magic, controlled and exquisite, the sort of thing you get from good string quartets.

Raymond Chandler

One of the greatest works of American literature ... a timeless evocation of the allure, corruption and carelessness of wealth.

The Times

A stunning illumination of the world. not only a miracle of talent but a triumph of technique.

Richard Yates
