Gatsby Inspired

There was very little chance that I wouldn't read a book with a title like The Summer We Read Gatsby. It immediately caught my eye at Barnes and Noble and I was even happier to discover that it was written be the author of Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him, another book that I really enjoyed. Both are chick-lit novels, but more smartly written than most. This one takes place over the course of one summer month in the Hamptons and is full of references to Fitzgerald and to artists like Jackson Pollack. It was a pleasant end-of-summer book.

And speaking of Gatsby, A Cup of Jo recently featured some pictures of a Jazz Age Brunch that was held on Governor's Island.

It's a 20's-themed weekend where people dressed up in flapper gear. How fun and Fitzgerald-esque does that look?
