Listening to the Twenties: Celebrating the Gatsby Era with 20 Audiobooks

Listen up! (See what we did there? No? You will.) The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton is now in theaters. The movie media blitz has been inescapable these past couple of months, so to help you navigate all things Gatsby (well, at least all things that are books you can listen to), we’ve enlisted the help of AudioFile Magazine to create a bookshelf of 20 Great Gatsby and Jazz Age-related audiobooks. The shelf is divided into four categories --- “The Gatsby in Many Voices,” “More Fitzgerald,” “Jazz Age History & Culture” and “Contemporary Writers on The Jazz Age” --- so no matter what you’re into, you’ll find something you can enjoy. And if you’re a Hollywood fanatic, you’ll be happy to hear some familiar voices, including Tim Robbins, Robert Sean Leonard, and everyone’s favorite movie star mom, Blythe Danner. All the reviews in this feature have been contributed by AudioFile, which gives us the chance to share audio works with you ---  and gives you the opportunity to explore a format that we typically do not present on the site.
