BOOK PROJECT THE GREAT GATSBY
F. Scott Fitzgerald's book THE GREAT GATSBY is about a man of good intent losing his life to a fable dream and reveals that not everyone is who they say they are. This theme is evident through the character of George B. Wilson and Gatsby.

- "I've got my wife locked up there," explained Wilson calmly.(Wilson 136)
- "He's a bootlegger"(Gatsby 61)
- "I was in the drug business and then I was in the oil buisness."(Gatsby 90)
Characterization: George Wilson
