Reader's note

Everybody who is anybody is seen at the glittering parties held in millionaire Jay Gatsby's mansion in West Egg, east of New York. The riotous throng congregates in his sumptuous garden, coolly debating Gatsby's origins and mysterious past. None of the frivolous socialites understands him and among various rumours is the conviction that 'he killed a man'. A detached onlooker, Gatsby is oblivious to the speculation he creates, but always seems to be watching and waiting, though no one knows what for. In this short novel Scott Fitzgerald distilled the essences of glamour and illusion so powerfully that his vision has haunted and tantalized generations of readers. This vintage Penguin book will be an enthralling read for anyone with an interest in the 1920’s, Scott Fitzgerald’s writing or the mysteries behind the man with the money!
