A classic American novel, The Great Gatsby is a monumental exploration of the American Dream, set in a colourful world of crime, infidelity, and lost love. Nick Carraway has just moved to Long Island, and the biggest name on the block is Gatsby, the eccentric millionaire who throws parties he does not attend. When Nick gets a chance to meet him he finds himself pulled into Gatsby’s machinations to win back his lost love – Nick’s married cousin, Daisy. F.

'But it hadn't been given for nothing. It had been given, even the most wildly squandered sum, as an offering to destiny that he might not remember the things most worth remembering, the things that he would now always remember' F. Scott Fitzgerald's stories defined the 1920s 'Jazz Age' generation, with their glittering dreams and tarnished hopes. In these three tales of a fragile recovery, a cut-glass bowl and a life lost, Fitzgerald portrays, in exquisite prose and with deep human sympathy, the idealism of youth and the ravages of success. This book includes Babylon Revisited, The Cut-Glass Bowl and The Lost Decade.
