If you have read The Great Gatsby, you'll probably agree it's a memorable book.
It is a book with a life of its own.
I passed an Asian hairdressers recently, and on his TV screen was the title,The Great
Gatsby - with a picture of the debonair Amitabh Bachchan.
I have seen two or three versions of this great book, yet it almost seems it can
be made and re-made in different genres and locales. As I say, Scott Fitzgerald's
book has a life of its own - it is universal, the characters could be Chinese or Indian
or African, upper-class, middle-class, lower-class.
It could be set in a very ordinary suburban corner, or the most salubrious mansion
on Acacia Avenue.
- The Great Gatsby does scaling exercises, study,etc, to a programme each day.
People liked my last piece about the notebook, so I remembered the above.
