A true classic of twentieth-century literature, this edition has been
updated by Fitzgerald scholar James L.W. West III to include the author’s
final revisions and features a note on the composition and text, a personal
foreword by Fitzgerald’s granddaughter, Eleanor Lanahan—and a new
introduction by two-time National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward. Nominated
as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read. The
Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme
achievement of his career. First published in 1925, this quintessential
novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The
story of the mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful
Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New
York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national
obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.
