A history of the liquid madness that takes a special place in literature and the edge off a "broiling" summer day.
The best Gatsby links from the week, plus a Gatsby companion reading list, review of two books about Zelda Fitzgerald, the Gatsby Character Map, menu and cocktail recipes, video from Stephen Colbert's Gatsby Book Club and new fiction in Southern Voice by a man who lives on Zelda Road. Happy Literary Friday, Gatsby style!
Sure, now is a great time to re-read "The Great Gatsby" or read it for the first time so you know what everyone's talking about, but if you want to further your Fitzgerald knowledge, there are several other books out just in time for the movie.
Nothing like a bit of Gatsby eye candy to wrap up this day. Architectural Digest has the dish on how Director Baz Luhrmann and his designer wife Catherine Martin created the dazzling sets in the new movie version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel.
