Elegant, enigmatic Jay Gatsby yearns for his old love, the beautiful Daisy. But she is married to the insensitive if hugely successful Tom Buchanan, who won’t let her go despite having a mistress himself. In their wealthy haven, these beguiling lives are brought together by the innocent and entranced narrator, Nick – until their decadent deceits spill into violence and tragedy. Part morality tale, part fairy tale, The Great Gatsby is the consummate novel of the Jazz Age. Its tenderness and poetry make it one of the great works of the 20th century.

F. Scott Fitzgerald: The Great Gatsby (Unabridged)

Chapter 1

It was lonely for a day or so…

And so it happened on a warm windy evening…

I told her how I had stopped off in Chicago…

'Tom's getting very profound,' said Daisy…

The telephone rang inside, startlingly…

When we came in she held us silent for a moment…

Chapter 2

We waited for her down the road and out of sight…

Just as Tom and Myrtle - after the first drink…

This absorbing information about my neighbor…

The bottle of whiskey - a second one…

Chapter 3

Dressed up in white flannels I went over…

The first supper - there would be another one…

I was still with Jordan Baker…

There was the boom of a bass drum…

As I waited for my hat in the hall…

Reading over what I have written so far…

Chapter 4

At nine o'clock, one morning late in July…

Little Montenegro! He lifted up the words…

Roaring noon. In a well fanned 42nd Street cellar…

Suddenly he looked at his watch, jumped up…

When I came opposite her house that morning…

Well, about six weeks ago, she heard the name Gatsby…

Chapter 5

The day agreed upon was pouring rain…

For half a minute there wasn't a sound…

'Oh, hello, old sport,' he said…

After the house, we were to see the grounds…

Chapter 6

He was employed in a vague personal capacity…

The rest of us walked out on the porch…

We were at a particularly tipsy table…

I stayed late that night. Gatsby asked me…

Chapter 7

The room, shadowed well with awnings…

I went with them out to the veranda…

Tom came out of the house wrapping a quart bottle…

With an effort Wilson left the shade…

The prolonged and tumultuous argument…

Gatsby's foot beat a short, restless tattoo…

Tom turned to Daisy sharply…

'You don't understand,' said Gatsby…

The young Greek, Michaelis, who ran the coffee joint…

'What's the name of this place here?' demanded the officer.

Somehow, that seemed a despicable occupation…

Chapter 8

'I can't describe to you how surprised I was…'

He left feeling that if he had searched harder…

When I passed the ashheaps…

Michaelis had seen this too…

Chapter 9

When the phone rang that afternoon…

The morning of the funeral I went up to New York…

He seemed reluctant to put away the picture…

That's my middle west - not the wheat…

There was nothing I could say, except…
