Two Noteworthy Articles About Gatsby and West of Sunset

From The Columbia Chronicle:

The Great Gatsby 90th Anniversary: 90 years ago on April 10, 1925, F. Scott Fitzgerald published his literary opus, “The Great Gatsby.”

 

From The Daily News of Newburyport:

F. Scott Fitzgerald returns in “West of Sunset,” a re-creation of his movie years

The American trio of Fitzgerald, Faulkner and Hemingway continues to live – notably, in fiction.

Two recent books that created fictional treatments were “The Paris Wife,” about Hemingway’s first, and “Zelda,” a fictional look at the tempestuous relationship between Fitzgerald, the brilliant if drunken wordsmith, and Zelda, his talented flapper-wife who was institutionalized in her final years.

And there was the highly amusing movie, “Midnight in Paris,” by Woody Allen.

My favorite send-up character in that film  was Hemingway: “Are a real man? Do you want to box?” (This after a dozen drinks).

Anyway, Your Scribe just finished “West of Sunset,” by Stewart O’Nan.
