And how do you like this creature over my cousin again?
Nick, this is my girl Myrtle.
We are introduced to Nick Caraway, a young man from Chicago that has moved to West Egg, New York, in invest in bond business.
New York City
I retract my previous thought.
Nick goes to visit his cousin Daisy Buchanan, as well as her husband, Tom. It is also here where we meet Jordan, a golf player. We also learn that Tom is seeing another woman, and it is inferenced that Tom is abusing Daisy.
Tom takes Nick to the Valley of Ashes, a mining town nearby, where we are introduced to Tom's mistress, Myrtle Wilson, who is also cheating on her husband George, who is a mechanic.
Mm... this is kind of awkward, but, I'm Gatsby.
Nick, Tom, and Myrtle go to a party in New York City, hosted by Myrtle's sister Catherine, where things start to get crazy. Oh, and Tom hits Myrtle, hence why she is crying.
Nick is invited to a fancy party next door, at his neighbor Jay Gatsby's house.
The party is in full swing, with lots of drinking and dancing and food. It is also here we meet the title character, Gatsby.
