The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald
“It’s hard to say what anyone should or shouldn’t read, let alone everyone, but The Great Gatsby is a book I find myself continually going back to, and I always seem to find something new. If you’ve read it once, it rewards
a second look. If you haven’t read it yet, well, I’m jealous of anyone who gets to read it for the first time.”
—Kevin Powers, whose debut novel, The Yellow Birds, was just published in paperback ($15, amazon.com).
