WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY GEOFF DYER

The world and his mistress are at Jay Gatsby‚e(tm)s party. But Gatsby stands apart from the crowd, isolated by a secret longing. In between sips of champagne his guests speculate about their mysterious host. Some say he‚e(tm)s a bootlegger. Others swear he was a German spy during the war. They lean in and whisper ‚e~he killed a man once‚e(tm). Just where is Gatsby from and what is the obsession that drives him?

This edition of The Great Gatsby is the result of a unique collaboration between Tiffany & Co. and Vintage Classics. It is based on designs in the Tiffany &Co. archives from the twenties when F. Scott Fitzgerald‚e(tm)s talent, beauty and notorious lifestyle made him one of best known writers of the Jazz Age.
