Remember Gatsby fever? Like, two weeks ago when everyone was all drinking Champagne and wearing seersucker at parties? Oh, those heady days of early spring!
It’s sort of tapered off a bit. That movie blew! However, should you find yourself in need of another Gatsby fix (or, you know, if you’re just a normal person who considers the book to be an enduring American classic)–and if you have about $100,000 to $150,000 to spare–Sotheby’s is auctioning off a rare first edition of The Great Gatsby that was once owned by the author Malcolm Cowley.
The sale, which takes place June 11 in New York, will also include a group of letters in which F. Scott Fitzgerald apologizes to the host of a dinner party “for being inebriated.”
