About the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) was an American author celebrated for his intricate narratives and keen social insights. Best known for "The Great Gatsby," Fitzgerald's works provide a vivid depiction of the Jazz Age, earning him a reputation as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.

Story Overview

"The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a mesmerizing portrayal of the Jazz Age, centered on the pursuit of the elusive American Dream.

Set in 1920s New York, the story is narrated by Nick Carraway, a young man who moves to Long Island's West Egg and becomes fascinated with his enigmatic neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Gatsby is a self-made millionaire known for his lavish parties, but beneath the glamour lies a man driven by a singular, obsessive love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan.

As the narrative unfolds, Fitzgerald masterfully explores themes of wealth, love, idealism, and social upheaval. This modern adaptation maintains the original's evocative storytelling and timeless critique of the American Dream, bringing "The Great Gatsby" to a new generation of readers.
