Great Gatsby, Creative Writing, and Dyslexia

Brilliant example of a potential viral blog post by an author that indirectly ties in his work:

"The Great Gatsby has been getting a lot of attention lately with the success of the latest movie adaptation ($51 million the first weekend, according to Forbes).
