A gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved American classic.
First published in 1925, The Great Gatsby has been acclaimed by generations of readers and is now reimagined as a stunning graphic novel. Jay Gatsby, Nick Carraway, Daisy Buchanan, and the rest of the unforgettable cast are rendered in vivid and evocative illustrations by artist Aya Morton. The iconic text has been artfully distilled by adapter Fred Fordham. Blake Hazard, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s great-granddaughter, contributes a personal introduction to the work.
This quintessential Jazz Age tale stands as the supreme achievement of Fitzgerald’s career and is a true classic of twentieth-century literature. The story of the mysteriously wealthy Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy is exquisitely captured in this enchanting edition.
F. Scott Fitzgerald stands out as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. His masterpieces include The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night. He was born in St Paul, Minnesota in 1896, attended Princeton University, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. He and his wife Zelda divided their time between New York, Paris and the French Riviera, as part of the circle that included Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos. He died in 1940, while working on The Love of the Last Tycoon, which has inspired a new drama series in development, The Last Tycoon.
Aya Morton’s work has been featured in Comics Art by Paul Gravett, exhibited in the London House of Illustration, and has received Awards of Excellence from Communication Arts and an honorable mention from 3x3 Illustration Annual. She is the illustrator of His Dream of the Skyland, the first book in a trilogy written by Anne Opotowsky, and has worked as a freelance artist in London and Portland, Oregon, where she now lives with her husband and two sons.
