Answers

Gatsby lies about practically everything. He's not from landed wealth or a rich family. His name isn't even Jay Gatsby. He comes from a very poor family, was a criminal at one point, was in the war at another point, made his money in shady deals and business ventures. Worst of all....he lies to himself about what life truly is and can be.
