L.A. Times book critic David L. Ulin saw "Gatz" this weekend. He's a longtime reader of F. Scott Fitzgerald (who isn't?) and we'll talk about what a play like "Gatz" means for literary adaptations. Join Ulin and me here Tue. at 10 a.m.
"Gatz" is the faithful-to-the-word stage adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," which has just opened in Los Angeles. But it's hardly the only literary adaptation this season. There are a pile of films -- "Anna Karenina," "Life of Pi," "The Hobbit," "On the Road" -- that all try to bring beloved classics to life.
