Publishers Simon & Schuster have announced that F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel "The Great Gatsby" is to re-named "The Distinctly Average Gatsby" after a lukewarm response from both public and critics to the recent movie release of the classic Jazz Age story.
"Unfortunately, it seems that Jay Gatsby's tale of vainglorious deceit no longer commands the same levels of acclaim as it did in the past," said Karl Slinghook, Simon & Schuster's director of communications. "So we feel the only responsible course of action is to re-title the book. We're sure that Scott would have approved. As for what this says about the American Dream, we'll just have to wait until the new edition of Brodie's Notes is published next year."
