Synopsis

“. . . It expresses one phase of the great grotesque spectacle of our American scene. It is humor, irony, ribaldry, pathos and loveliness. . . . A curious book, a mystical, glamorous story of today. It takes a deeper cut at life than hitherto has been essayed by Mr. Fitzgerald. He writes well — he always has — for he writes naturally, and his sense of form is becoming perfected.” –Edwin C. Clark Books of the Century; New York Times review, April 1925

“…from The Great Gatsby we find that often the wanting of something is better than actually having it. Relevant to every man is the revelation that one true friend may be infinitely better than a multitude of acquaintances.”

A look at America’s Jazz Age,  male friendship and a bit of opulence, while entertaining this classic work may provoke some inward reflection.
