A Whole Lot of Gatsby

A Whole Lot of Gatsby

0

A first edition copy of F. Scott’s Fitzgerald’s 1925 magnum opus The Great Gatsby will be auctioned by New York Sotheby’s on June 11. Its previous owner, author Malcolm Cowley, anthologized 28 Fitzgerald short stories and edited a reissue of Tender is the Night. The lot is expected to fetch as much as $150,000, especially since Baz Luhrmann’s recent film adaptation has brought new hype (and hip-hop) to the classic. Also for sale will be an unpublished poem and a group of the author’s letters, including an apology to a party’s host “for being inebriated.”
