“The Great Gatsby“
One of the Most Revered Works of Art from the 20th Century Vs.
the 2013 Baz Luhrmann Adaptation
Get your Flapper outfits ready and fill that tub with bootleg gin–The Margos go deep into the backstory of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Though it is now considered one of the most important American novels of all time when it was published in 1925–it sold half as well as his previous novels and Fitzgerald felt like a failure.
The life of Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda Sayre is one of the most tragic we have yet to cover and we get into all of the details in this show. Plus. we dissect between the book, the audiobook narrated by Jake Gyllenhaal and the rather frenetic movie directed by Australian Baz Luhrmann.
Once again, we are SO lucky to have Penguin Books sponsor this episode! The Margos are thrilled to be asked to talk about author Ransom Riggs‘ newest “Miss Peregrine’s story”–A Map of Days which is on sale right now.
This is the fourth novel in the series and lead character Jacob Portman’s life in the United States is the setting for this newest adventure. Get your copy today! (It makes for a great gift, by the way.)
