lilthyme is not currently reading any books.
I’m 42 years old, female, from the United States. I’ve been a DailyLit member since September 28, 2008. My reading interests include classics, and non-fiction.
It is a story that requires re-reading every decade or so. Life brings about a deeper understanding.
I love this book. Much closer to the life of Fitzgerald and so many who live for things they don't possess.
