The novel’s narrator, Nick Carraway, hails from a prominent, well-to-do midwestern family and describes the Carraways as something of a clan. Nick mentions that his family has lived in the Midwest for three generations and are descendants of the Dukes of Buccleuch.
Tom and Daisy Buchanan are married and live in East Egg. Gatsby and Nick live in West Egg. Gatsby lives in a mansion; Nick lives in a small cottage next door.
In the spring of 1922, Nick takes a house in the fictional village of West Egg on Long Island, where he finds himself living among the colossal mansions of the newly rich.
