The Great Gatsby Unbound

By F. Scott Fitzgerald and Karena Rose

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

Fifty Shades of Grey meets The Great Gatsby. Sex collides with the classic 1920s American classic in a burst of erotic ecstasy and dark secrets, and one of literature's finest novels will never be read the same again.

Nick Carraway, a young virgin from Minnesota, moves to New York in the summer of 1922 to find love. He rents a house in the West Egg district of Long Island, a wealthy but unfashionable area populated by the 'new rich' - a group prone to garish, extravagant parties full of wild, erotic activities.

And Nick's next-door neighbour is the worst of them all: a mysterious man named Jay Gatsby who throws open the doors of his gigantic Gothic mansion every Saturday night to house the most opulent, seductive sexual encounters. A carnal, sensual world is revealed to Nick, led by the beautiful, alluring, golf champion, Jordan Baker who is devoid of all love and wants to make him another of her playthings.

But who is Jay Gatsby? And what will happen when Nick steps into his raunchy, wild mansion? Things will never be the same again in this erotic retelling of The Great Gatsby.
