Re question 6:

“Which set of books have you read ALL of?”

I have to admit I’ve never read The Great Gatsby. But I used to live in a neighborhood where F. Scott Fitzgerald had briefly lived a couple generations before, and what bond is closer than that, really?

    Yours matches mine almost exactly.

    Gatsby is worth a read once. I think Fitzgerald would have been brilliant if he hadn’t sogged his brain with booze. As it is, flickers of brilliance make compelling reading.

      My son read my blog over my shoulder yesterday, and then spent some time calmly explaining to me what Gatsby‘s good points and bad points were, as he saw it. I felt bad for not having read it, but felt good that he could be so patient in enlightening my darkness. Thanks to him and you, I’ll probably get around to Fitzgerald some time this winter.
