    i believe both went to oxford

    lived during jazz age

    gatsby is mostly what fitzgerald wanted to be like/have

    so not much is based off true events

    they both loved someone but couldnt be with them (Zelda and Fitzgerald were engaged, she left at first)

    both looked for American dream /money/ happiness

    hope this helps
