A few Gatsby things:
I’m still a little skeptical about Carey Mulligan as Daisy, but how gorgeous is she on the cover of Vogue? That lime green dress is perfection.
I think I’ll re-read the Great Gatsby (as soon as I finish Ghostwritten! So good!) in advance of seeing the movie. I haven’t read it since high school. A former co-worker recently shared an article claiming the book is awful. I’m inclined to disagree, but excited to revisit it.
Baz Luhrmann decided to remake the Great Gatsby after listening to an audio version of the book on the trans-Siberian Express. Mr. Luhrmann, on the trip:
You could actually recommend this as therapy to someone who was really in trouble: Get in a tin box, travel through Siberia, listen to ‘The Great Gatsby’ and drink red wine till you’re drunk.
Sign me up.
