The Great Gatsby

Justify the break in the narrative in which Nick gives an account of his life and work in New York. (p.37) Why has Fitzgerald included this break? What does it add to the narrative?

Chapter 3, thanks

Fitzgerald wants to give context into the life of Nick. He wants us to consider Nick separately from the filthy rich of East Egg. Nick is meant to be an unbiased voice of the middle class.
