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

from The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald:

A man named Klipspringer was there so often and so long that he became known as “the boarder”—I doubt it he had any other home. Of theatrical people there were Gus Waize and Horace O’Donavan and Lester Myer and George Duckweed and Francis Bull. Also from New York were the Chromes and the Backhyssons and the Dennickers and Russell Betty and the Corrigans and the Kellehers and the Dewers and the Scullys and S. W. Belcher and the Smirkes and the young Quinns, divorced now, and Henry L. Palmetto, who killed himself by jumping in front of a subway train in Times Square.
