THE GREAT GATSBY

Earphones Award Winner

by F. Scott Fitzgerald | Read by Tim Robbins, Robert Sean Leonard

Classics • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1925

THE GREAT GATSBY, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s snapshot of the decadence and excess of the Jazz Age, is a literary classic that has been frequently and successfully performed on both screen and stage. Although Gatsby has been recorded previously on audio, Tim Robbins’s reading is surely one of the best. Robbins excels in giving each of the characters a distinct persona, conveying emotion with an almost elegant sense of detachment. The final tape contains letters from Fitzgerald to his agent, and others, about the book. These candid letters are fascinating, and Robert Sean Leonard reads them with the smugness one would expect from Fitzgerald. The letters add a different, and fascinating, perspective to Fitzgerald and the times in which he lived. D.J.S.
