The Great Gatsby chronicles America in the Jazz Age of the 1920s. It follows Jay Gatsby and his love for Daisy Buchanan. There is wealth, booze, sex, and lavish parties. The book was challenged by the “Baptist Church in South Carolina because of its language and mere references to sex” (Banned Books that Shaped America).
