Waiting for Gatsby

The Great Gatsby cover by Francis Cugat

Detail of original Gatsby cover by Francis Cugat

If you’ve already read The Great Gatsby (or you’re waiting for your hold to come up at the library – it’s a hot commodity right now!) and are looking for some reading to tide you over until Baz Lurhmann’s film adaptation comes out next week, here’s a list Emily Temple put together on Flavorwire of “10 Books to Read While You’re Waiting for ‘The Great Gatsby’ to Come Out.”

The wide-ranging list features “similarly jazzy, indulgent, socially critical reads,” including Rules of Civility by Amor Towles, Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, and Jazz by Toni Morrison.

PS – For a fascinating look at Gatsby book covers over the years and around the world, see this article from Business Insider.
