Scott Fitzgerald in his fictional novel, The Great Gatsby. Set during the twenties, it portrayed the carefree lifestyle of people who lived like there was no tomorrow.

These critics would get their wish in 1920 however where there was a will there was a way. Fitzgerald’s portrayal of the gaiety of the twenties certainly emphasized that, describing gala parties and devil-may-care characters.
