“After years a searching, I feel like I’ve finally found someone whose love of Disney matches my own. He doesn’t tease me when I explain that I want a Disney wedding dress, or bridesmaid dresses. He just tells me he loves me and that I will be beautiful. I’ve found the one.”

Happy Birthday to the Great American novel, The Great Gatsby, which was published on this day 88 years ago in 1925.
I think you have every kind of right to be proud of this book [The Great Gatsby]. It is an extraordinary book, suggestive of all sorts of thoughts and moods. You adopted exactly the right method of telling it, that of employing a narrator who is more of a spectator than an actor: this puts the reader upon a point of observation on a higher level than that on which the characters stand and at a distance that gives perspective. In no other way could your irony have been so immensely effective, nor the reader have been enabled so strongly to feel at times the strangeness of human circumstance in a vast heedless universe. In the eyes of Dr. Eckleberg various readers will see different significances; but their presence gives a superb touch to the whole thing; great unblinking eyes, expressionless, looking down upon the human scene. It‘s magnificent! — Maxwell E. Perkins, 1924
