A brilliant, innovative, reverently faithful graphic novel adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's jazz-age classic.
Nicki Greenberg's adaptation of 'The Great Gatsby' brings to life the grand and crumpled dream's of F. Scott Fitzgerald's unforgettable characters. In the exquisitely realised setting of 1920s New York, a throng of fantastical creatures play out the drama, the wry humour and the tragedy of the novel.
'Bizarre, absorbing and very funny. a bold idea that works to great effect.' Shaun Tan
'Greenberg's The Great Gatsby is a pure delight. it's a work of art; every page is beautiful.' The Blurb
'Greenberg's delicate, expressive artwork, deft period re-creation and precise, sympathetic storytelling capture the novels glittering surface and melancholic undertow.' The Weekend Australian
