Gatsby Fishbowl: Chapter 3

Hello, outer circle!

Here's my suggestion for stepping up the level of conversation today: Try bringing textual passages into some of your comments. Fitzgerald revised and revised each line of Gatsby--let's pay some homage to his language.

One other suggestion: Try getting into a hotseat. It's fun. Enjoy!
