Description

VINTAGE CLASSICS X MADE.COM

The world and his mistress are at Jay Gatsby's party. But Gatsby stands apart from the crowd, isolated by a secret longing. In between sips of champagne his guests speculate about their mysterious host. Some say he's a bootlegger. Others swear he was a German spy during the war. They lean in and whisper `he killed a man once'. Just where is Gatsby from and what is the obsession that drives him?

This series is a collaboration between Vintage Classics and MADE.COM. Using their furniture and fabrics as a starting point, MADE.COM have recreated the settings and atmosphere from three of Vintage Classics's best-loved novels: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Great Gatsby and The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Review quote

"The Great Gatsby remains not just one of the greatest works of American literature, but a timeless evocation of the allure, corruption and carelessness of wealth...a gilded society intoxicated by wealth, dancing its way into the Great Depression." * The Times * "Gatsby is a connoisseur's guide to the glamour and glitter of the Jazz Age, but it's also a nearly prophetic glimpse into the world to come. Writing at the height of the boom, in the midst of the Roaring Twenties, Fitzgerald detected the ephemerality, fakery and corruption always lurking at the heart of the great American success story... A haunting meditation on aspiration, disillusionment, romantic love - and a blistering expose of the materialism, duplicity, and sexual politics driving what Fitzgerald calls America's true "business": "the service of a vast, vulgar, and meretricious beauty"" * The Times * "It is a marvellously suggestive novel...a parable of modern America, and by extension of modern life" * Daily Telegraph * "The first and greatest modern novel, it has beautiful women, lavish parties, romance, betrayal and murder woven together in an intricately structured plot. A prescient comment on the dying days of a gilded age that is brilliant entertainment with a very eloquent insight" * Mirror * "His masterpiece, an elegy for the American Dream, the greatest lost cause of them all" * Los Angeles Times *
