There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired.
Extravagant rumors abound of a man named Jay Gatsby who has newly arrived to the coastline of a section of Long Island known colloquially as West Egg. Long into the night, the mysterious Gatsby threw lavish parties at his sprawling estate, but when alone, Gatsby could be found staring longingly at a solitary green light across the dark water. For all Gatsby has attained in his life, that green light represents all that he lost.
The greatest story to encapsulate the roaring twenties, The Great Gatsby is presented by Reader's Library Classics in this paperback edition. The story about the denizens from East and West Egg has remained a timeless classic in American literature since its original publication in 1925.
