"Canadian readers are indeed fortunate to have Michael Nowlin's extremely useful edition of The Great Gatsby. Nowlin provides a wealth of ancillary materials that enhance our understanding and appreciation of Fitzgerald's masterpiece: a selection of Fitzgerald's correspondence about Gatsby; eight advertisements that graphically demonstrate the commodity culture underlying the novel; and, perhaps most worthwhile of all, a selection of contemporary essays that supply an invaluable contextual framework for Gatsby. Throughout, Nowlin's emphasis is on the quality, not quantity of these materials; the result is a book that will be indispensable to students, teachers, and the casual reader alike." -- Jackson R. Bryer, University of Maryland "This edition of The Great Gatsby confirms what Fitzgerald Society members have long believed: Michael Nowlin is a leader in the emerging generation of Fitzgerald scholars. His introduction here charts the intensely personal journey through love, loss, and ambition that Fitzgerald traveled in order to realize his masterpiece; Nowlin's appendices, meanwhile, provide secondary sources for appreciating the chaotic energies of youth, race, and cultural change compelling the novel's inexorable tragedy. Whether excerpting Fitzgerald's mid-1920s correspondence, contemporary reviews, or nonfiction gems of the day--including Zelda Fitzgerald's insightful 'What Became of the Flappers?' (1925)--Nowlin dramatizes how thoroughly Jay Gatsby's creator intuited the sadness and uncertainty beneath the glitz and gild of modernity's most golden of decades." -- Kirk Curnutt, Troy University, Vice-President of the F. Scott Fitzgerald Society
