The Great Gatsby As Told in a Series of Texts

Warner Bros.


The Great Gatsby has it all—romance, jazz, general disillusionment with the American Dream. What it doesn’t have is texting, and I think that’s a real shame. (I just feel like Tom Buchanan would’ve been an emoji man, and I hate that we'll never know for sure.) The problem is that F. Scott Fitzgerald didn’t have the good sense to be writing this book in the twenty-first century, but that’s okay. We’ve got his back.

About the Author

In real life, she goes by the name Courtney Gorter. This is a closely guarded secret, and you're the only one who knows about it, so be cool. You can follow her on Twitter or check out her website if you want, but it's just going to be a lot of complaining.
