    Description: F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic American novel of 1920s love, life and indulgence, The Great Gatsby, is adapted into a thrilling film by Baz Luhrmann starring Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Leonardo Di Caprio. During the roaring twenties, aspiring writer Nick Carraway ( Tobey Maguire) arrives in New York and quickly becomes intrigued by his neighbour Jay Gatsby's ( Leo Di Caprio) lavish lifestyle and mysterious past. Just what is he hiding - and why? As Nick gets closer to Gatsby, he finds himself caught up in a wealthy world where romantic entanglement and betrayal are considered the norm. As Gatsby tries to rekindle his relationship with old flame Daisy Buchanan, it's not long before tragedy strikes... The glorious art-deco style of the era is perfectly realised, while Jay- Z's hand-picked soundtrack gives the latest film adaptation of The Great Gatsby a contemporary edge.

Description: Published a year after The Great Gatsby, this short-story collection showcases many of the celebrated novel's themes, as well as its unique writing style. Two of the most famous tales, the beautifully elegiac ' The Rich Boy' and ' Winter Dreams', deal with wealthy protagonists - the old-money Anson Hunter and the self-made man Dexter Green - as they come to terms with lost love; while ' Absolution', in which a boy confesses to a priest, was initially written as a background piece to The Great Gatsby.

Category: Childrens Fiction And Narratives
Description: From Collins Classics and the author of ' The Great Gatsby' comes this razor-sharp satire on the excesses of the Jazz Age. From the author of The Great Gatsby, a tale of marriage and disappointment in the Roaring Twenties. Fitzgerald's rich and detailed novel of the decadent Jazz Era follows the beautiful and vibrant Anthony Patch and his wife Gloria as they navigate the heady lifestyle of the young and wealthy in 1920s New York. Patch is the presumptive heir to his grandfather's fortune, and keeps his equally spoiled wife in comfort while biding time until his grandfather's death. Patch is unable to hold down any kind of job and spends his days in luxury, indulging in whatever pleasures are available. But as the money begins to fail, so does their marriage. Patch's gradual descent into alcoholism, depression and alienation from his marriage ultimately lead to his ruin. Fitzgerald's novel is a remorseless exploration of the horrors of an age of excess and lost innocence. F. Scott Fitzgerald is regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Despite his present popularity, Fitzgerald was often in financial trouble, due to the fact that only one of his novels sold well enough to support the extravagant lifestyle that he and his wife Zelda adopted, and later Zelda's medical bills. His novel The Great Gatsby has sold millions of copies and remains a continual best-seller.

Category: Novels Narratives Anthologies
Description: The Great Gatsby meets The Secret History in this torrid novel of love, lust and deception. Harry and Madeleine Winslow are blessed with talent, money, and charm. Harry is an award-winning author on the cusp of greatness. Madeleine is a woman of sublime beauty and grace whose elemental goodness belies a privileged upbringing. Bonded by deep devotion, their marriage is both envied and admired by friends who spend summers at their East Hampton idyll. When a holiday fling turns disastrously wrong, 26-year-old Claire falls into the Winslows' welcoming orbit. They are enchanted by her youth and intelligence. In turn, Claire is entranced by Harry and Maddy. The love that exists between them is something of which, until now, she could only dream. Seen through the omniscient eyes of Maddy's childhood friend Walter, a narrator akin to Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby, Indiscretion is a story about the complexities of love, the dangerous nature of desire and how obsession can tear apart even the most perfect of worlds.
