F Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel on the fallibility of the American dream.

by F Scott Fitzgerald.

Dramatised by Robert Forrest.

F Scott Fitzgerald's seminal novel, a portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, is perhaps the greatest book on the fallibility of the American dream.
