THE GREAT GATSBY, regarded as one of the greatest American novels since its publication in 1925, started out as a very different book. TRIMALCHIO, an early version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel available exclusively from Cambridge University Press, inspired Baz Luhrmann’s big-screen GATSBY.
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

Panteleimon Ekkekakis provides an accessible guidebook which clarifies theory and proposes a sound system for selecting measures for affective constructs.
"…a powerful plea for a qualitative shift in the way research is conducted. It is a wise, thoughtful, and much needed guidebook for the transition from a prescientific to a scientific paradigm. If researchers read this book, they will be convinced, they will change their behavior, and their research will advance. I'm often asked to recommend a measure for emotion or mood, and I never have a simple answer. Now I do: Read Ekkekakis."
--Professor James A. Russell, Boston College
