I have been in New York City since April the 11th on sabbatical, I have been to the theater twice and the Met once. At the theater I saw Edward Albee's "Three Tall Women" with Glenda Jackson and Laurie Metcalf, and "The Book of Mormon" which is still selling out. At the Met I saw "Lucia di Lammermoor". Yesterday I went to the Strand bookstore, while up in their rare book collection on the third floor where I found this wonderful book. It is a limited edition of Fitzgerald's manuscript (facsimile) of "The Great Gatsby" in Fitzgerald's own hand notes and strike troughs. The manuscript is a rare look at Scott's creative mind and what changes were made.
The Manuscript will go well with my 1st edition of "The Great Gatsby".
