The Great Gatsby: A Graphic Novel Adaptation

By F. Scott Fitzgerald
Illustrated by K. Woodman-Maynard

A sumptuously illustrated adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved novel of the 1920s, in a vivid and accessible new format.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 masterpiece roars into life in this sweeping, dreamy graphic novel – among the first adaptations of the book in this genre. Painted in lush watercolours, the inventive interpretation emphasizes both the extravagance and mystery of the characters, and excerpts from the original text weave themselves through the illustrations. Prepare to be carried off on a cloud of whimsical romance with Daisy and Gatsby, in a reading experience reminiscent of Hollywood classic movies. The graphic novel format makes it an ideal teaching tool to engage GCSE and higher level Literature students of Gatsby, and the art-deco gift design will prove irresistible to existing fans and collectors. With its timeless critique of class, power and obsession, The Great Gatsby: A Graphic Novel Adaptation captures the energy of an era and the enduring resonance of one of the world’s most beloved books.

  • An irresistible piece of visual storytelling, which captures all the romance, drama and enchantment of the original and the doomed decadence of the roaring Twenties.
  • An accessible educational supplement for students of The Great Gatsby, which is often taught at GCSE and A level, and on higher education Literature courses.
  • There are few published graphic interpretations of The Great Gatsby.
