Enter the dazzling world of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, a tale of wealth, ambition, and the elusive American Dream. Set in the opulent 1920s, the story follows Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, who pursues his unattainable love, Daisy Buchanan. Amidst extravagant parties and societal excess, Fitzgerald weaves a narrative of love, betrayal, and the dark undercurrents of the Jazz Age. Through vivid prose and complex characters, the novel explores themes of disillusionment, class divide, and the relentless pursuit of an idealized past. With its timeless exploration of human desires and the consequences of unchecked ambition, "The Great Gatsby" remains a literary masterpiece that resonates across generations. • A mesmerizing portrayal of the Roaring Twenties' decadence. • Intricate character study of love, ambition, and disillusionment. • Fitzgerald's evocative prose transports readers to a bygone era. • A critique of the American Dream's elusive allure. • A classic that captures the essence of a tumultuous era.

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century, was born on September 24, 1896, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, to an upper middle class Irish Catholic family. A renowned American author of novels and short stories, Fitzgerald’s first piece of writing—a detective story published in the school newspaper—appeared in print in 1909, at the age of thirteen. His works form the epitome writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined himself. He is considered a member of the ‘Lost Generation’ of the 1920s. He finished four novels, This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby—his most famous—and Tender Is the Night, in his lifetime. A fifth, unfinished novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, was published posthumously. Fitzgerald also wrote many short stories on themes of youth and promise along with despair and age.
