Jay Gatsby is never a concrete character within the novel; his background story and his statements are ever-changing, and are usually proven to be untrue.

As the plot disentangles, Fitzgerald exposes Gatsby 's dark roots, including his partygoers ' assumptions that he killed a man or is actually a German spy from the Third Reich, and the fact that he can never get the story regarding how he climbed to prosperity, straight.
