For there was only one person Jay Gatsby sought to impress. She was Daisy Buchanan : married, elegant, seducing men with a silken charisma and 'a voice ... full of money'. As Gatsby pursues shady deals and his doomed obsession with Daisy, F. Scott Fitzgerald distills the essence of the jazz Age, and probes to the empty heart of the American Dream.
