Description-

  • A gorgeous new edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece, with an introduction by Melina Marchetta

    All the bright young things go to Jay Gatsby's Long Island parties. Yet Gatsby himself is reserved and mysterious. He seems always to be waiting for something or someone. When he finally draws the beautiful Daisy Buchanan back into his orbit, he sets in motion a series of tragedies. And F. Scott Fitzgerald gives us what many consider to be the greatest American novel—a crystalline portrait of a society captivated by status and ambition, and a man doomed in love.

    Baz Lurhmann's spectacular film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, is due for release in Australia in 2013.

    F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul Minnesota, in 1896, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. His masterpieces include The Beautiful and the Damned and Tender is the Night. He died at the age of fourty-four. After his death, New York Times said that Fitzgerald 'was better than he knew, for in fact and in the literary sense he invented a generation.'

    Melina Marchetta is the bestselling author of Looking for Alibrandi and The Piper's Son.

    'It is the American masterwork, the finest work of fiction by any of this country's writers.' Washington Post

    '[Fitzgerald's] talent was as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a butterfly's wings.' Ernest Hemingway

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from December 2, 2002
    Audio reviews reflect PW's assessment of the audio adaptation of a book and should be quoted only in reference to the audio version. Fiction THE GREAT GATSBY F. Scott Fitzgerald, read by Tim Robbins. Caedmon Audio, unabridged, six cassettes, 7 hrs., $27.95 ISBN 0-06-009890-2 Readers in that sizeable group of people who think The Great Gatsby
    is the Great American Novel will be delighted with Robbins's subtle, brainy and immensely touching new reading. There have been audio versions of Gatsby
    before this—by Alexander Scourby and Christopher Reeve, to name two—but actor/director Robbins brings a fresh and bracing vision that makes the story gleam. From the jaunty irony of the title page quote ("Lover, gold-hatted, high-bouncing lover, I must have you!") to the poetry of Fitzgerald's ending about "the dark fields of the republic" and "boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past," Robbins conjures up a sublime portrait of a lost world. And as a bonus, the excellent audio actor Robert Sean Leonard reads a selection of Fitzgerald's letters to editors, agents and friends which focus on the writing and selling of the novel. Listeners will revel in learning random factoids, e.g., in 1924, Scott and Zelda were living in a Rome hotel that cost just over $500 a month, and he was respectfully suggesting that his agent Harold Ober ask $15,000 from Liberty
    magazine for the serial rights to Gatsby.
