one of my teachers one time argued that Nick Carraway was gay and it was pretty hilarious. Remember that scene where Nick was in the elevator with that artist dude? sorry it's been a while since I read it but that's a pretty gay scene
Oh I got that first part, I just didn't understand the Nick is gay thing, I don't remember that scene from the book, perhaps it was from the movie? Either way, I haven't seen any of the various film adaptations yet. We're supposed to watch the '74 version next week. I'll see how terrible it is!
