The Summer We Read Gatsby

The Summer We Read Gatsby

304 pages; Viking
A sophisticated comedy of manners about a wealthy family torn apart and brought together by the contents of a will. A bit over-the-top and rarified—as befits both the title reference and the author's history. Ganek wrote about the chi-chi New York arts scene in Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him.
