In F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," Jordan Baker tells Nick that Jay Gatsby is in love with Daisy Buchanan. Jordan also tells Nick that Gatsby bought his mansion in West Egg solely to be near Daisy.

Jordan provides Nick with several details about the relationships between Daisy, Tom and Jay. Before Daisy married Tom, she was a beautiful girl in Louisville, Ky., admired by many young soldiers. Daisy fell in love with Lieutenant Jay Gatsby, who was stationed at the base near her home. Though she married Tom after Gatsby left for the war, Daisy drank herself into numbness the night before her wedding after receiving a letter from Gatsby.
