Library Journal

As the title explains, Fitzgerald's initial take on what we know as Gatsby was somewhat different when he first delivered the manuscript to Scribner editor Max Perkins in 1924. Perkins made several suggestions on changes, and Fitzgerald went to work revising the story, eventually altering the title as well. In this earlier version, narrator Nick Carraway's personal life outside of his dealings with Daisy and Gatsby has a larger role, but the meat of the story remains the same. Nonetheless, considering the novel's importance to American letters, academic libraries should purchase. Publics can play it by ear. In addition to the text, this edition features numerous photos and scholarly notes, etc. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
