WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY GEOFF DYER The world and his mistress are at Jay Gatsby s party. But Gatsby stands apart from the crowd, isolated by a secret longing. In between sips of champagne hisguests speculate about their mysterious host. Some say he s a bootlegger. Others swear he was a German spy during the war. They lean in and whisper he killed a man once . Just where is Gatsby from and what is the obsession that drives him? This edition of The Great Gatsby is the result of a unique collaboration between Tiffany & Co. and Vintage Classics. It is based on designs in the Tiffany &Co. archives from the twenties when F. Scott Fitzgerald s talent, beauty and notorious lifestyle made him one of best known writers of the Jazz Age.

About the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896 -1940) is widely considered the poet laureate of the Jazz Age. He wrote many short stories and four novels, This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and the Damned, Tender is the Night and The Great Gatsby. An unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon, was published posthumously.

Reviews

"It's an absolute gem and stands head and shoulders above the others. With its thick creamy pages and gorgeous black, gold and mint green cover design inspired by pieces from the Tiffany archive, not only is it a pleasure to hold but for once it delivers on the publisher's promise to "evoke the beauty and romance, glamour and luxury of the Roaring Twenties depicted in the novel"" * Evening Standard * "The Great Gatsby remains not just one of the greatest works of American literature, but a timeless evocation of the allure, corruption and carelessness of wealth...a gilded society intoxicated by wealth, dancing its way into the Great Depression." * The Times * "Gatsby is a connoisseur's guide to the glamour and glitter of the Jazz Age, but it's also a nearly prophetic glimpse into the world to come. Writing at the height of the boom, in the midst of the Roaring Twenties, Fitzgerald detected the ephemerality, fakery and corruption always lurking at the heart of the great American success story... A haunting meditation on aspiration, disillusionment, romantic love - and a blistering expose of the materialism, duplicity, and sexual politics driving what Fitzgerald calls America's true "business": "the service of a vast, vulgar, and meretricious beauty"" * The Times * "It is a marvellously suggestive novel...a parable of modern America, and by extension of modern life" * Daily Telegraph * "The first and greatest modern novel, it has beautiful women, lavish parties, romance, betrayal and murder woven together in an intricately structured plot. A prescient comment on the dying days of a gilded age that is brilliant entertainment with a very eloquent insight" * Mirror *
