About the Book

An undisputed masterpiece of twentieth-century literature, now in a stunning, deluxe package perfect for Fitzgerald lovers and classics collectors alike.

  • This deluxe version of The Great Gatsby will join the ranks of the Harper Perennial Modern Classics Deluxe editions, and will be a necessary addition to any classics lover’s shelf. It will have a gorgeous cover design with foil stamping, deckle-edged paper, and French flaps. 
  • Penned in the “roaring twenties,” the novel continues to be the subject of numerous film and stage adaptations and has become a fixture in the American classroom. This lean, dangerously propulsive tale of the seduction of glitz and glamour continues to be relevant almost a century after it was published.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“[Fitzgerald] had one of the rarest qualities in all literature—charm. It’s not a matter of pretty writing or clear style. It’s a kind of subdued magic, controlled and exquisite, the sort of thing you get from good string quartets.” 
- Raymond Chandler

“[Gatsby’s] exuberant ambitions and his abrupt tragedy have merged with the story of America, in its self-creation and its failure.”  - The New Yorker

“Fitzgerald’s novel is a portal to the savage heart of the human spirit, affords a glimpse at our humanity and wonders at our enormous capacity to dream, to imagine, to hope and to persevere.”  - Irish Times

“[Gatsby] is a celebration of intemperance, and a condemnation of its destructiveness. It is about trying to recapture our fleeting joys, about the fugitive nature of delight. It is a tribute to possibility, and a dirge about disappointment. It is a book in which the glory of imagination smacks into the grimness of real life.”  - The Guardian

“A stunning illumination of the world, not only a miracle of talent but a triumph of technique.”  - Richard Yates
