Set during the Roaring Twenties against a backdrop of jazz music, bootlegging, and lavish parties, The Great Gatsby is the story of Midwesterner Nick Carraway’s introduction to the decadent world of his fabulously wealthy neighbour Jay Gatsby, whose thirst for riches is matched only by his tragic pursuit of the beautiful Daisy Buchanan. A true literary classic that unfolds at a time when “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” The Great Gatsby is widely considered to be one of the best novels of the twentieth century (The New York Times).
