Book review

F.Scottreads.jpg

***** ****'s Book: It was wonderful. I couldn't lay it down, was impelled on the contrary to hurry through it. In fact I finished it in six and a half minutes while getting shaved in the Continental Hotel. It is what we call a book written at a fine pace. As for the high spots, there are so many that it is difficult to pick them, but I could select.

--F. Scott Fitzgerald, from the notebooks, available in The Crack Up.
