Fitzgerald’s Gatsby: America Unravelled

4/10: Often thought of as the Great American Novel, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby was published on this day in 1925. Though it received favorable reviews, Fitzgerald’s tale of class and wealth on Long Island’s Gold Coast was a commercial disappointment during his lifetime. Distributed for free to troops during World War II, the book attained renewed popularity as well as reexamination, and has since been regarded as a classic.
