Only a few weeks after she’ll have appeared halfway around the world at the Jaipur Literature Festival, Britain’s Sarah Churchwell visits these parts to discuss her internationally-praised book on F. Scott Fitzgerald and the legacy he left behind in, Careless People: Murder, Mayhem, and the Invention of The Great Gatsby (Penguin Press). “[Sarah Churchwell] evokes the Jazz Age in all its ephemeral glamour and recklessness in her latest book … She excels at providing rich period details … the book highlights how accurately Fitzgerald intuited what was to come: the damage being done to American society by focusing on wealth, the way mass media would give rise to a celebrity culture.”- Publishers Weekly. “A literary spree, bursting with recherché detail, high spirits, and the desperate frisson of the jazz age.” – The Observer.
