Reading is, dare I say, important to being a writer. (Controversial statement, I know.)
But if you had to choose one book that you think every writer should read, which one would it be?
The perfect novel? A guide to writing? Strunk & White?
I’m going with The Great Gatsby. It may not be my favorite novel of all time, but I think it’s perhaps the most perfectly written.
Which one would you choose?
