Oh, the highs and lows. I've always adored this novel, and its unparalleled evocation of 1920s glamour; the romance, the tea dresses, the whole idea of Daisy dancing in the moonlight on the beach. Thus I am A) gutted that the original house said to have inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald has been torn down (why, why, WHY let them? They are going to build five horrid modern houses on the land - cretins!) and B) thrilled that Catherine Martin is set on recreating the movie magic here in Sydney.
Bring on the flapper styling.
