Hi all, I am looking for books with a similar mood and setting as the Great Gatsby. I really love the feeling, the story line, the decadent lifestyle and that era in general.Any recommendations welcome!!

The late Hemingway combined with Pasternak.

Anna Yes, The Sun Also Rises and some of the Short Stories.

Evelyn Waugh wrote several satirical and highly entertaining novels set in the era of the Bright Young Things; strongly recommended! Decline and Fall, Vile Bodies, etc.

You're probably aware, but F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote other novels and short stories. This Side of Paradise has a Great Gatsby feel, IMHO. Those writers--Fitzgerald, Waugh, early Hemingway--are sometimes characterized as the "Lost Generation." That may put you on the scent of other similar writers... or helpful lists.
