Ernest Hemingway is one of my favorite writers. His writing style was simple, but its undertones—powerful. His characters—memorable, and his settings were depicted in remarkable imagery. His zest and passion for life were depicted throughout his writing.
Scott Fitzgerald wrote this letter to his editor, Max Perkins, when he set out to write The Great Gatsby. He included these words: “I want to write something new — something extraordinary and beautiful and simple & intricately patterned.
When it comes to Fitzgerald, everyone runs towards "The Great Gatsby" but we actually prefer this later novel. Longer and far more psychologically complex than "Gatsby," this novel is both a page-turner and a bit of a challenge towards the end.
