Today’s episode is the second of five where we will be presenting F. Scott Fitzgerald’s immortal The Great Gatsby. This piece is a little edgier than the stuff we usually present. The themes deal largely with racism, and socio-economic elitism. There’s also some rougher language, just so you have a heads up.
And now, The Great Gatsby, part 2 of 5, by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
