Rate this book
Roman in curs de ecranizare, avandu-i in rolurile principale pe Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan si Joel Edgerton.

Un tanar fascinat de visul american, proaspat venit la New York si doritor de succes, Nick Carraway, impartaseste povestea transformarii lui James Gatz in Jay Gatsby. Pe fundalul unei Americi prospere, dar haotice, Gatz, minat de mirajul iubirii fata de Daisy Buchanan, isi schimba viata, devenind din student la Oxford gangster, traficant de bauturi alcoolice si apoi milionar. Iubirea sa pentru Daisy nu se implineste insa; ramane povestea donquijotesca a Marelui Gatsby, desfasurata odata cu un iluzoriu, nesfirsit American dream.

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was an American writer of novels and short stories, whose works have been seen as evocative of the Jazz Age, a term he himself allegedly coined. He is regarded as one of the greatest twentieth century writers. Fitzgerald was of the self-styled "Lost Generation," Americans born in the 1890s who came of age during World War I. He finished four novels, left a fifth unfinished, and wrote dozens of short stories that treat themes of youth, despair, and age. He was married to Zelda Fitzgerald.
