He just took his life and his wife's life, exaggerated it and added affairs, then published it. Anyone can do that. Daisy Buchanan life is basically Zelda’s life, but amped up. “Daisy began to move again with the season; suddenly she was again keeping half a dozen dates a day with half a dozen men…” Daisy, like Zelda,…
