SO WE READ ON How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures

by | Read by Maureen Corrigan

Contemporary Culture • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

NPR reviewer Maureen Corrigan's voice is familiar and agreeable, and her account of her long interest in--and near obsession with--Fitzgerald's matchless novel is a feast for those who share her passion. At 10 hours, her discussion of "How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures," is just about the length of the novel itself--and even shares the cover art of a familiar paperback edition. The novel, Fitzgerald's life, and a near-century of assessments of both book and author are the interlocking pieces of a story that is sad, and even pathetic, at times but in dozens of ways enhances our affection for both the novel and its author.
