Praise For…


“Brings the entire story to life in such vivid, quick-turning pages. The parties, the dresses, the mansions, the green light—all illustrated here beautifully. And it still packs the wallop that the original does!” —Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Daisy Jones & The Six

“Morton's eye for fashion and interior decor aids the reader in becoming fully immersed in the era, while Fordham's economical reworking of the original text reflects a deep intimacy with Fitzgerald's work.” Shelf Awareness

“Fordham retains much of Fitzgerald’s singular prose, which Morton illustrates with an eye toward period detail and restraint that blossoms into expressive tableaus of vivid color at key moments. Here, Fitzgerald’s incisive exposé of the shallow excesses of the elite feels startlingly fresh nearly 100 years after its original publication.” Library Journal

“[Fordham] does a fine job distilling the haunted romanticism of Fitzgerald’s narrative. . . . The clean, Art Deco–like backgrounds by Morton evoke the beguiling but ultimately empty nouveau-riche milieu of Gatsby and the Buchanans in suburban Long Island, as well as the dreary gray world of Myrtle and George Wilson in working-class Queens. . . . the fidelity of this graphic adaptation should satisfy Fitzgerald devotees.” Publishers Weekly
