The Gatz

Last night I finished reading The Great Gatsby -- its the second Fitzgerald book I've read, the first being Tender is the Night. For some reason, even though I was an English major as an undergrad, I hadn't read any Fitzgerald until about a year ago. I really enjoyed reading both of these novels, although sometimes the characters would leave me a little cold. His descriptions, though, are wonderful. I'll find myself thinking of the way he described some rich, 1920s socialite at a party in the middle of my non-rich, non-1920s, non-party day. So, bring on the Fitzgerald, I'm totally up for more.
