F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby
Featuring Min Jin Lee and Jennifer Buehler
A brilliant evocation of the Roaring Twenties and a satire of a postwar America obsessed with wealth and status, The Great Gatsby is a novel whose power remains undiminished after a century. A perennial staff pick at Greenlight, it’s also one of the inspirations behind our name! Penguin Classics has brought readers a new Deluxe Trade Paperback Edition that restores Fitzgerald’s masterpiece to the original American classic he envisioned. Min Jin Lee, the bestselling author of Pachinko, contributes a new introduction to this special edition, addressing how gender, race, class, and sexuality complicate the pursuit of the American Dream. Jennifer Buehler, who contributed “Suggestions for Further Exploration” to the Penguin Books Premium Mass Market edition of the book, joins Lee in discussing and celebrating this new iteration of one of the great American novels.
