The Great Gatsby – F.Scott Fitzgerald [Graphic Novel]

The Great Gatsby is considered by many to be one of the greatest books of the twentieth century. Now a graphic novelist, Nikki Greenberg, has spent six years painstakingly rewriting the story in graphic novel form. Instead of making the characters lifelike or realistic in any way, Greenberg has chosen to invent bizarre, barely clad creatures of the imagination. Gatsby is cast as a seahorse – a flamboyant yet slippery and dreamy misfit, whilst Daisy is akin to a bird – elegant and flighty but with an instinct for survival.

It is up to the reader to accept this surreal setting with characters stranger than fiction who inhabit Fitzgerald’s jazz-age world of the early twentieth century.
