Three weeks before it was published in 1925, the book that is often referred to as the Great American Novel had an alternative title, Trimalchio in West Egg. Fortunately Fitzgerald's publisher thought The Great Gatsby was better. Whether it would have made any difference to its success, who knows? I've deliberately eschewed listening to it, preferring to remember reading it myself, but William Hope's glorious interpretation is too good to miss. --Sue Arnold, The Guardian
Early drafts of the novel entitled Trimalchio: An Early Version of The Great Gatsby have been published.   A notable difference between the Trimalchio draft and The Great Gatsby is a less complete failure of Gatsby's dream in Trimalchio . Another difference is that the argument between Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby is more even,  although Daisy still returns to Tom.
