Sunny Afternoon

Book & Tea

The perfect weather for taking in some of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s aphorisms. These Penguin editions are amazing, too. Probably the nicest hardcover books I own.

Good stuff.

On a Fitzgerald-related note, how do you think that Great Gatsby movie is going to turn out? It worries me that they’re playing up the glamor and affair between Gatsby and Daisy, when the whole book tended to be rather cynical and mostly happening between the glamorous stuff.

I dunno. Aesthetically I think it will be tremendous. A sort of hyper-realistic take on the era, and perhaps really in the sprit of things. Hard to tell about the cynicism from the trailers, or indeed how what the focus will be.

I’m looking forward to it though. It’s one of my favourite novels!
