When the bleakness of January weighs on your spirits, escape into a languid and mischievous season in the Hamptons. The Summer We Read Gatsby by Danielle Ganek is a light-hearted story of two wildly different half-sisters who inherit the home of their beloved aunt. Those who gather around Fool’s House include a performance artist who serves as butler, a neighboring millionaire who has a history with one of the sisters, and a charming golden-boy architect. Narrator Justine Eyre smoothly distinguishes each character’s voice, contrasting pretension with earnestness and bringing just the right touch to the comic relief. Bask in the delights of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jackson Pollock, and one unforgettable summer.
