    Summary

    A series of interconnected paragraph-long vignettes featuring intense ruminations on Modern Life, Tom's racism, and Jordan Baker's honed and glistening biceps, among other exciting thematic elements. Basically a retelling of The Great Gatsby. My English professors would've been so ashamed of me.

    Summary

    "Gatsby smiled stiffly. He had been prepared to give a long speech in preparation for requesting Nick’s assistance in seeing Daisy. He had been willing to go into poetry to declare his love for Daisy and convince Nick of his sincerity. And now Nick…already knew?"

    Or, the one where Gatsby has been wining and dining Nick for weeks and Nick comes to the logical conclusion. Which is not, actually, the correct conclusion. Or is it?

    Summary

    "Jordan sighed. 'To be quite frank,” she said. “He is taken by me.'
    For a moment Gatsby seemed to be taken aback, and Jordan smiled a thin smile. It wasn’t entirely accurate. But she had seen the way Nick’s eyes had fixed on Gatsby from the moment he had entered their conversation, sliding away from Jordan as if she was no longer there beside him. And she didn’t like it."

    OR, five times Jordan Baker talked about marrying Nick Carraway, and one time she was no longer interested.

    Summary

    Officer Jay Gatsby was the man of Nick Carraway's dreams and obsessions. Meeting him for the first time at his cousin's party for the fellow soldiers that were going away, Nick knows that Gatsby only has eyes for Daisy. This doesn't stop him from dreaming though. After being caught in a compromising position with his hand and a night that Nick would never forget, he writes it all down in his journal. He meets up with Gatsby several times throughout his life before finally meeting him once more when he moves to the West Egg, where our tale really takes off. Sex, lies, and blackmail follow Nick Carraway through his tale and we watch as he is consumed by the man we all know as Jay Gatsby.
