The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1st edition cover, 1925

The Great Gatsby (novel) (1925) by F. Scott Fitzgerald (This Side of Paradise (1920), The Beautiful and Damned  (1922), Tender Is the Night (1934), The Last Tycoon – originally The Love of the Last Tycoon (posthumously, 1941)) Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is, of course, the marvelous, constant best-selling literary classic, set in 1922 in the exclusive communities of Long Island, and almost systematically taught in U.S. schools as an example of The Great American Novel, and is, to this day, always worth rereading.  The Great Gatsby was, as you surely know, made into a very good film of the same name starring the excellent Robert Redford and Mia Farrow with the screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola and Vladimir Nabokov.  (PR)
