The Great Gatsby: Large Print by F Scott FitzgeraldIn 1922, F. Scott Fitzgerald announced his decision to write something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple + intricately patterned. That extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgeralds finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the authors generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies some of Fitzgeralds--and his countrys--most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings. Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but thats no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning-- Gatsbys rise to glory and eventual fall from grace becomes a kind of cautionary tale about the American Dream.
