This is the first edition ever published of Trimalchio, an early and complete version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald submitted the novel to his editor at Scribner's as Trimalchio, and then virtually rewrote it at galley-proof stage, producing the book we know as The Great Gatsby. This ur-version, Trimalchio, has only been seen by a handful of people until now. It is markedly different from Gatsby in characterization, narrative voice, and, most importantly, in its handling of the revelation of Jay Gatsby's past.
"The Cambridge edition of Trimalchio is for scholars and Fitzgerald fanatics...Trimalchio has shown me a new way to love Gatsby. I'm compelled into a vast aesthetic contemplation: I dream of The Great Gatsby as it might have been, greater still-" Adam Begley, New York Observer
