the last book I ever read (The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, excerpt two)

from The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald:

“I was brought by a woman named Roosevelt,” he continued. “Mrs. Claud Roosevelt. Do you know her? I met her somewhere last night. I’ve been drunk for about a week now, and I thought if might sober me up to sit in a library.”

“Has it?”

“A little bit, I think. I can’t tell yet. I’ve only been here an hour. Did I tell you about the books? They’re real. They’re----"

“You told us.”

We shook hands with him gravely and went back outdoors.
