By the Book: Is The Great Gatsby Misunderstood?

Ask most people what The Great Gatsby is about, and you’re likely to hear of flappers, parties, and Jazz Age-glamour. But eye candy-filled screen adaptations aside, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s treasured classic is actually a dark exploration of relationships and the hollowness of the American dream. Inspired by a BBC article, we discuss why this novel is so prone to being misrepresented, then close the discussion off with a larger conversation on often misunderstood books.
