    The Great Gatsby

    London Literature Festival

    To coincide with the LIFT 2012 presentation of Gatz in London this summer, the London Literature Festival 2012 hosts a day of events examining this enduring American classic.

    F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is a classic of 20th-century literature, and its themes of glamour, consumption and questionable morality are resonant in our own time. With the staged performance Gatz hitting the West End and a new film due for release shortly, Geoff Dyer, Sarah Churchwell and other writers, critics and theatre makers discuss the enduring appeal of the novel and the ways in which it has influenced their own work.

    Presented at the Southbank Centre as part of the London Literature Festival 2012 in association with LIFT.
