Title: The Great Gatsby Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald Artist: Unknown We've all seen an awful lot of covers for F. Scott Fitzgerald's widely read classic but none of them scream cool quite as much as this one does. From the yellow backdrop to the monochromatic man to the fact that he's using the damn 'Y' as a cocktail glass, it's an undeniably attention-grabbing image.

"You know these new novels make me tired. My God! Everywhere I go some silly girl asks me if I've read 'This Side of Paradise.' Are our girls really like that? If it's true to life, which I don't believe, the next generation is going to the dogs. I'm sick of all this shoddy realism."
F. Scott Fitzgerald was an author during the Great Despression and Jazz Age. He is considered a member of the "Lost Generation." He completed four novels and one half of a fifth one. His most famous book was called, "The Great Gatsby". He also wrote short stories about different ages and promises and despairs. And he was named after his second cousin, Francis Scott Key.
Pretty cover for this book! I didn't like this at first, but it's really grown on me and it is absolutely the definition of a classic.
