Generally considered to be F. Scott Fitzgerald's finest novel,
The Great Gatsby is a consummate summary of the "roaring
twenties", and a devastating expose of the "Jazz Age". Through the
narration of Nick Carraway, the reader is taken into the
superficially glittering world of the mansions which lined the Long
Island shore in the 1920s, to encounter Nick's cousin Daisy, her
brash but wealthy husband Tom Buchanan, Jay Gatsby and the mystery
that surrounds him.
