"Berman provides new perspectives on "Gatsby" by showing how prevailing ideas and attitudes of the time prompted Fitzgerald to probe moral and ethical issues for this novel. . . . Berman's analysis of how the story unfolds and Gatsby captures the reader's emotion and compassion is an important contribution to the study of this novel."--"CHOICE"
