With this special edition, we celebrate the 95th anniversary of this literary masterpiece. F. Scott Fitzgerald's third novel, The Great Gatsby was ?rst published ninety-?ve years ago in 1925. Regarded as his magnum opus, it is set during the 'Roaring 20s' in America and is a vivid chronicle of the decadence, glitz and excesses of the 'Jazz Age'. This representative work is a cautionary critique of the American dream which has made it one of the most quintessential American novels of all time. The Great Gatsby-the glittery, tragic tale of Jay Gatsby and his elusive love, Daisy Buchanan-explores themes of idealism, materialism, debauchery, social upheaval and more. This book is still strikingly relevant in the materialistic world we live in, a world that no longer frowns upon the distasteful show of wealth and fame||About the Author||Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was born in 1896 in St. Paul, Minnesota. He attended Princeton University, where he began writing what would become his ?rst novel, This Side of Paradise. He left Princeton to join the army during World War I, though the war ended shortly after his enlistment. This Side of Paradise, published in 1920, was a critical and ?nancial success and was followed the same year by his ?rst story collection, Flappers and Philosophers, followed by Tales of the Jazz Age in 1922. Fitzgerald went on to publish three more novels-The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender is the Night-and many more stories. He died in 1940, leaving his last novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, un?nished.
