SOMETHING GORGEOUS is Junior Burke's debut novel. Set in the world of Fitzgerald's Gatsby, Something Gorgeous weaves historical figures with imaginative characters: "Faye Kingsley had blue eyes. She would say they were green, simply because green was her favorite color. It was as though by telling so obvious an untruth, she was daring people to deny her something. And many people, even boys and young men who got close enough to gaze at her face, came away saying that Faye Kingsley's eyes--at certain angles, in certain lights--were indeed green..."
