Gatsby. We asked one of the people that went to the party to give us a description about it. “The party started at the lobby, where a very big fountain pouring whisky forms all sides. As the party continued the people moved on to the backyard which had about one acre. People got ‘happier’ and ‘happier’ and some of the flappers started strip teasing to the cello players of the orchestra (…). People started throwing themselves to the pool or falling roundly on the floor.

Some of the people that were in the party never left it until the next day. They either slept in the garden benches or at the entrance in the fountain border. Police appeared once, for an alleged noise complains, and immediately one of Gatsby’s butlers went to the car and spoke to him, driving him immediately off the front lawn. ” As we see Gatsby’s parties were extravagant and almost always uninterrupted. This is very awkward for a man that fought in the world war as a lieutenant from the 28th infantry division.

Furthermore it is said that Jay Gatsby killed a man in American soil, and that his fortune his most of it inherited. One of his party attendants said that there were some sections of the house that were closed to the public, which would be perfectly reasonable, but these were always closely guarded by a pair of goons. People say that there is a body in there. Gatsby’s house is electric every night, with no exception, is it raining or is it shining. Some terrible and dark secrets are behind Jay Gatsby, and Town Tattle uncovered some of them, including his source for the lcohol. It is said to be that a West Egg man form the name of Wolfshiem. We tied to contact him, but such a thing wasn’t achievable. One of our reporters did a little research on the Hall of Records and we found out that the person that we know as Jay Gatsby, was once when he was young called James Gatz, the son of two peasants! What a turnaround! When we talked to Gatsby, he said: “These are the parties of the year. No one does them better, and there are no complains. They are electric! ”
