Description

Nicki Greenberg's adaptation of 'The Great Gatsby' brings to life the grand and crumpled dream's of F. Scott Fitzgerald's unforgettable characters.

'Bizarre, absorbing and very funny. a bold idea that works to great effect.' Shaun Tan

'Greenberg's The Great Gatsby is a pure delight. it's a work of art; every page is beautiful.' The Blurb

'Greenberg's delicate, expressive artwork, deft period re-creation and precise, sympathetic storytelling capture the novels glittering surface and melancholic undertow.' The Weekend Australian
