The Great Gatsby

1934 Modern Library edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. Director Baz ┬áLuhrmann’s film adaptation of The Great Gatsby opens in theaters on May 10.

Please note the “Discontinued Title” stamped on the front. This edition is the first and only time The Great Gatsby has been out of print since it was originally published in 1925. It is also interesting for Fitzgerald’s own preface, in which he defends his book and dismisses its critics.
