The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books (some others are Frankenstein, Pride and Prejudice, Bridget Jone’s Diary, Lillith’s Brood and The Eleventh Commandment).

I’m very curious about the upcoming Gatsby movie — it will be directed by Baz Luhrmann, which makes me a bit worried. His extravagance seems thematically just right and stylistically totally wrong, so it’s a hard call. The news today is that Carey Mulligan will play Daisy, which seems like decent, if not inspired, casting. She will be able to wear the clothes at least.
