“The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Listened to an audiobook version of the novel, narrated by Alexander Scourby. A story about dashed American dreams and lost love, written in a crisp, wisecracking style. Rich imagery, but vacuous content.

“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther . . . So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
