The Great Gatsby is a novel by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The book takes place in 1922, during the roaring twenties, the post-World War prosperous time in the United States. Described as the "ironic tale of life on Long Island at a time when gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession," it received critical acclaim. In it, Fitzgerald was at his best...his "ability to catch the flavour of a period, the fragrance of a night, a snatch of old song".
The book is widely regarded as a "Great American Novel" and a literary classic, capturing the essence of an era and the post-war "carefree madness"of a nation hungry for life. The Modern Library named it the second best English-language novel of the 20th Century.
