The Great Gatsby gets a magical, entrancing makeover with Nghi Vo’s The Chosen and the Beautiful, which reimagines the Fitzgerald classic from the point of view of Daisy Buchanan’s golf pro and certified flapper girl pal Jordan Baker—that is, if Jordan Baker were a queer Vietnamese adoptee who could practice magic while moving through the most prestigious circles of society during the Jazz Age. A luminous shift in perspective for a classic, this retelling will never let you look at Gatsby the same way.
