He was less than truthful when telling Nick about his life. He gave him a bit of background, but he also failed to mention any of the details behind his wealth. He didn't inherit anything..... but he did make some money bootlegging.


The Great Gatsby

As far as the revelation of Gatsby's background, are you referring to Chapter 7?
