What is the town tattle in The Great Gatsby?



‘Town Tattle’ was a 1920’s gossip magazine, much like ‘Ok’, ‘Hello’, ‘heat’ and so on of today. Myrtle’s purchase of it at the newsstand in Chapter 2, and the further copies Nick sees in Myrtle and Tom’s lovenest symbolise Myrtle’s aspirations and her struggle to rise out of the poverty of her own miserable background.
