F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby is a novel by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The book takes place from spring to autumn 1922, during a prosperous time in the United States known as the Roaring Twenties, which lasted from 1920 until the Wall Street Crash of 1929. Between 1920 and 1933, the Prohibition completely banned the sale and manufacturing of all alcoholic beverages. The ban made millionaires out of bootleggers, who smuggled alcohol into the U.S.. The setting of the novel contributed greatly to its popularity following its early release. [Wikipedia]
