On December 21, 1940, F. Scott Fitzgerald passes away in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA. His most notable work, “The Great Gatsby,” is a book most Americans read in school, but Maureen Corrigan, the book critic for “Fresh Air,” argues that it is usual read too soon and emotionally unready to face the emotional turmoil Fitzgerald weaves into the plot. Corrigan pulls out the connections Gatsby has to crime fiction and how it offers commentary on issues concerning race, class, and gender.
