He had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life.'

Day and night his Long Island mansion buzzes with bright young things drinking, dancing and debating his mysterious character. For Gatsby - young, handsome, fabulously rich - always seems alone in the crowd, watching and waiting, though no one knows what for. Beneath the shimmering surface of his life he is hiding a secret- a silent longing that can never be fulfilled. And soon this destructive obsession will force his world to unravel.
