MY "GATSBY" FIXATION, a short essay, to be published by Silver Birch Press in 2015

My short essay, MY "GATSBY" FIXATION, will be published in an anthology commemorating the 90th anniversary of the publication of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel THE GREAT GATSBY, in April 2015, by Silver Birch Press in California.

Fitzgerald's novel had an influence on my teenage ideas of romance and taste in clothes.  This essay, under 1000 words, is an account of that influence.
