nick is gay 2k20
I am one of those people who didn't have to read The Great Gatsby in high school. I we never in the class that it was assigned but heard good things about the book from classmates. So on it went to my TBR. Fast forward a few years and I've finally gotten to it. I see why it was a favorite.
While Moby-Dick is THE American novel of our eternal values, Gatsby is THE American novel of, for, and about modern times.
