Editorial: Penguin Books

 Review: The Great Gatsby” (1925), F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, stands among the greatest of all American fiction. Jay Gatsby’s lavish lifestyle in a mansion on Long Island’s gold coast encapsulates the spirit, excitement, and violence of the era Fitzgerald named ‘the Jazz Age’. Impelled by his love for Daisy Buchanan, Gatsby seeks nothing less than to recapture the moment five years earlier when his best and brightest dreams - his ‘unutterable visions’ - seemed to be incarnated in her kiss. A moving portrayal of the power of romantic imagination, as well as the pathos and courage entailed in the pusuit of an unattainable dream, The Great Gatsby is a classic fiction of hope and disillusion.
