On April10th, 1925 F. Scott Fitzgerld’s book, The Great Gatsby, was first published. Fitzgerld’s preferred title for the work was Trimalchio in West Egg, but the publisher wouldn’t agree. Under the Red, White, and Blue was also a possibility or Gold-Hatted Gatsby, but those too, were discarded. Initially, it didn’t sell well. I can understand. It’s not a very upbeat story. I have not read the book, only seen the movie. It is now on my list to read.
