One example of foreshadowing in the novel is in chapter 4 when Nick is introduced to Mr. Wolfsheim, a gambler who is friends with Gatsby and who, according to Gatsby, “fixed the world’s series back in 1919”.

This lie indicates he wants to isolate himself people as well as getting close. Then he pretends to be this character named Jim Steele just to try to boost his own confidence, and not to mention he paid for a prostitute named Sunny.
