My favorite page in all of The Great Gatsby is the dedication:

Once Again To Zelda

That sentence just shatters me.

Fitzgerald said of Zelda:

I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity and her flaming self respect.  And it’s these things I’d believe in even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all that she should be…I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.

Sigh.

May Books:

1. A Confederacy of Dunces: John Kennedy Toole

2. Peace Like a River: Leif Anger

3. Madame Bovary: Gustave Flaubert (Thanks, Mindy)
