Availability: In Stock

The plot, set in the summer of 1922, is narrated by Nick Carraway, a World War I veteran and a Yale graduate. Nick moves from Minnesota to an affluent neighborhood in West Egg on Long Island, and intends to settle down to a quiet life, selling bonds in New York. Just when he thinks that he has left the complexity of life behind him, he receives an invitation to a social party from his mysterious billionaire neighbour. This changes and alters his perception of life. Nick’s neighbour, Jay Gatsby, lives in huge gothic mansion surrounded by immaculately kept lawns. Not much is known about Gatsby, except that he throws lavish parties on a regular basis, and knows how to impress his guests. But is he really going all out just to impress the fickle-minded socialites of Long Island and New York, or is there an ulterior motive behind the irrational and reckless display of wealth? The Buchanans live across from Gatsby in East Egg. Unknown to everyone, Daisy and Gatsby were once in love, before the war tore them apart. While Gatsby went to fight in the war, Daisy married Tom, a former football star. As fate would have it, Nick turns out to be Daisy’s cousin, and this vital detail draws him into a fatal love triangle that exposes him to the frailties of human relationships. The novel, through Gatsby’s tragic pursuit of his dream, captures the moral breakdown of a society obsessed with status and wealth, and the post-war American disillusion. For all his wealth and social status, can Gatsby manage to win back his lost love? This book answers this question and more.
