This novel takes the reader through a poignant love story between Anthony, a self-absorbed heir to a great fortune, and the stunningly beautiful, but equally self-absorbed, Gloria. The two have little use for anything or anybody but themselves. Fitzgerald's beautiful prose and excellent development of the characters makes this an enjoyable read. What is even more fascinating about the vintage 1922 novel is its description of life in that time. Things we take for granted today are portrayed in a 1915-ish reality. For instance, Anthony and Gloria grow weary of the train ride to their summer house near Rye, NY. Anthony then comes-up with the a remarkable fix; they will purchase an automobile!--Submitted by Anonymous.
