Anything else?

31 May

All this is from the Nick and Gatsby’s car ride in Chapter IV:

He reached in his pocket, and a piece of metal, slung on a ribbon, fell into my palm

“Here’s another thing I always carry.  A souvenir of Oxford days.  It was taken in Trinity Quad – the man on my left is now the Earl of Doncaster.”

Taking a white card from his wallet, he waved it before the man’s eye’s  . . . “I was able to do the commissioner a favor once, and he sends me a Christmas card once every year.


Gatsby’s pockets are both literally and figuratively deep.
