#43 on the Big Read List (UK’s top 200). Modern Library’s 100 Best Novels of the Century. One of the New York Public Library’s Books of the Century, one of Time Magazine’s all-time 100 novels.

Having recently returned from military duty overseas during the Great War, Nick Carraway is restless and tired of his provincial life in the Midwest. He moves East to get into the bond market and soon finds himself living among the idle rich on Long Island. Nick reacquaints himself with his cousin, Daisy Buchanan, and her husband, Tom, and through them he meets the "incurably dishonest" Miss Baker, for whom he begins to develop a romantic interest. Nick soon learns of Daisy's deep unhappiness and Tom's affair with Myrtle Wilson, a married woman.

Before long, Nick is drawn inextricably into their lives and to one man who still believes in the American Dream—Jay Gatsby. As Nick and Gatsby are carried along by forces that neither of them fully controls or understands, they will experience the consequences of materialism, deceit, and petty self-interest.
