The great Gatsby by Robert Markowitz( Visual )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jay Gatsby is a man possessed--driven by greed, ambition and, most of all, an unwavering desire for a woman he met before the Great War, when he was poor and she was unobtainable. F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece is an extraordinary journey into the heart of the American Dream and out the other side, where the spoils of success do not always suffice. This lively and lavish adaptation from A & E captures the heady swirl of the Jazz Age in all its excess and decadence. As Gatsby reinvents himself in an attempt to buy his way into the social elite of Long Island's Gold Coast, he yearns to rekindle his romance with the woman who stole his heart years before. But when the chance finally arrives, a shadow of tragedy is cast over what Gatsby long-imagined would be his triumphant moment. The Great Gatsby is a mesmerizing, tangled tale of wealth and entitlement, love and longing
