Gatsby vs Atticus

In the past two days, I have read 'The Great Gatsby' and 'To Kill a Mockingbird.' Both are condidered classics, but IMO, Harper Lee is the much better writer. Something tells me Fitzgerald drank too much and partied even more.

I have never read the Great Gatsby, though many people tout it as a wonder work of fiction. I'll have to add this to my list...just to know.

I have read to Kill a Mockingbird and remember really enjoying the story.

As far as Fitzgerald is concerned wasn't he known for his indulgences?

I heard somewhere he was. I know he spent a lot of time hanging out with celebrities and traveled to Europe a lot.
