Alternate Titles for The Great Gatsby

  • Among the Ash-Heaps and Millionaires
  • Trimalchio in West Egg
  • Trimalchio
  • Gatsby
  • Gold-Hatted Gatsby
Fitzgerald's editor, Max Perkins, always liked The Great Gatsby. But Fitzgerald himself vacillated on the title right up until the book's publication.

(I'm reading A. Scott Berg's Max Perkins: Editor of Genius. Hence the recent Fitzgerald posts.)
