To celebrate my all time favourite novel (from my all time favourite author) being adapted into the epic, fall-to-your-knees film of breathtaking, haunting and heartbreakingly tragic beauty, I officially declare and dedicate the month of May to all things Great and all things Gatsby (that’s The Great Gatsby for those living sous-rock).
I’ll be posting quotes here and there from the book. Be sure to call everyone ‘old sport’, won’t you now.
QUOTE NUMBER ONE FROM MISS DAISY BUCHANAN:
“I hope she’ll be a fool — that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool… You see, I think everything’s terrible anyhow… And I know. I’ve been everywhere and seen everything and done everything.”
– F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby, Ch. 1
