The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

ISBN 9781907832567

Amidst prosperity of the 1920s in New York we see a portrait of the Jazz Age, with its decadence and excess. This novel is considered Fitzgerald 's best work and captures the spirit of the author's generation.  A love story and a cautionary tale about the American Dream ingrained in Gatsby's journey to happiness, this story presents a fine example of 20th century American writing.

A month before publication, after a final review of the proofs, Fitzgerald asked if it would be possible to re-title the novel Trimalchio or Gold-Hatted Gatsby but his editor, Maxwell Perkins, advised against it. On March 19, Fitzgerald asked if the book could be renamed Under the Red, White and Blue but it was at that stage too late to change. The Great Gatsby was published on April 10, 1925. Fitzgerald remarked that "the title is only fair, rather bad than good." Read more >

"Civilization's going to pieces. I've gotten to be a terrible pessimist about things... The idea is if we don't look out the white race will be--will be utterly submerged... It's up to us, who are the dominant race, to watch out or these other races will have control of things. -- The Great Gatsby

ISBN: 9781909438019 (paper back) ISBN: 9781909438026 (ebook)

Clarissa Dalloway is preparing to host a party. She is the kind of woman you would pass on the street without a thought, and Woolf lets us see the dreams, fears, foibles, passion and pain that swirl endlessly inside Mrs. Dalloway. We follow Clarissa through the course of a single day, and as she goes about her errands, preparing for a party she’s giving that night, her lost love for an old flame resurfaces unexpectedly; her never-consummated lesbian longing for a childhood friend; and her endless yearning for some resolution, direction, permanence.
