The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald was first published today in 1925! It received mixed reviews and sold poorly; in its first year, the book sold only 20,000 copies. Fitzgerald died in 1940, believing himself to be a failure and his work forgotten. Today it is considered the supreme achievement of his career and an exemplary novel of the Jazz Age, acclaimed by generations of readers.
