The Jazz Age
A new film of The Great Gatsby will be released on May 10 and I can’t wait to see it. The anticipation has me wanting to familiarize myself with the novel and the earlier movie versions, with F. Scott Fitzgerald, and with the Roaring Twenties. Here are some audio choices for those of you who may share my fascination with this era:
New World Coming: The 1920s and the Making of Modern America by Nathan Miller. Read by Lloyd James on both eAudio and CD.
