The Trouble with Gatsby

It seems that portraits of novels are all the rage.  I found a sample version in my amazon vine box.  It will soon be released in the United States.

Sarah Churchwell takes a lens to The Great Gatsby, and judging by this review in The Guardian does a reasonably good job of presenting the "Careless People" that surrounded F. Scott Fitzgerald, he included.  But, Gatsby is one of those books that has been endlessly explored since it was first published in 1925.  Judging by the review, Churchwell doesn't add anything new to the mountain of research that has been done, but instead offers a picturesque story of the Roaring Twenties.

More interesting perhaps is this stage production of The Great Gatsby by the Calgary Theater.
