Teaser Tuesdays: So We Read On

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures by Maureen Corrigan p. 86

"With every passing month of his New York odyssey, Fitzgerald grew more anxious about his failure to set himself above the crowd. He'd moved into a rented room at 200 Claremont Avenue, near Columbia University."

I gained some sympathy for Fitzgerald, who in the past I'd lumped in with the misogynist Hemingway, in this book. He seemed just like a usual young adult, moving to New York with great aspirations that weren't realized. He soon had to move back home to Minnesota with his parents.
