Finally, after all these years, I have read "The Great Gatsby."
Mostly it was a yawner, but there is this truly excellent passage:
Referring to a famous house,
A brewer had built it early in the "period" craze, a decade before, and there was a story that he'd agreed to pay five years' taxes on all the neighboring cottages if the owners would have their roofs thatched with straw. Perhaps their refusal took the heart out of his plan to Found a Family -- he went into an immediate decline. His children sold his house with the black wreath still on the door. Americans, while occasionally willing to be serfs, have always been obstinate about peing peasantry."
