    The Great Gatsby (1925) by F. Scott Fitzgerald, first edition book cover She had been a shy mousy haired girl in my senior English class, but she had helped me out a lot on homework and trying to understand Shakespeare and The Great Gatsby.

Collection of short stories by F.Scott Fitzgerald. Nobody talks about his short stories, but I really enjoy them. My favorite from this collection is "Bernice Bobs Her Hair". I also love "Winter Dreams", but it is not included in this collection.

Coralie Bickford Smith is the designer behind this F Scott Fizgerald series of books from Penguin Classics. There are 5 books in all, each of which have a fantastically glam Art Deco inspired cover by Bickford Smith.

Read this before watching the movie! PS. Check out my board to see how to get Daisy's Hairstyle! Even if you have long hair!

I've read this several times. Always at the direction of a teacher. I liked it well enough, but I don't see greatness. I feel the same way about Catcher in the Rye.
