In this edition of Book Talk we focus on a classic, which many people would call the classic: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Paul Gallagher is joined by two avowed Gatsby fans - The Skinny Magazine’s Books Editor Keir Hind and Scottish Book Trust’s Head of Programme Sophie Moxon.

Later in the podcast the discussion opens out to asking what makes a book particularly re-readable, which books we like to go back to and read again, and why.
