About the author

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born on the 24th of September 1896 and died on the 21st of December 1940. He was a famous American writer of novels and short stories and The Great Gatsby is one of his greatest works, although it wasn't seen as a great work until his death. He was living a very exclusive lifestyle and therefore was in financial trouble permanently. When he moved to Hollywood in 1937 he had an annual income of less than 30.000$ and made most of this with selling short stories. His extravagant lifestyle had inormous effects on his health and he has been an alcoholic since his college days. He had two heart attacks in the 1930s and died because of a third on in 1940 at the age of 44. His works became more and more popular from this day on and The Great Gatsby is nowadays seen as one of the greatest pieces of American literature.
