Cannery Row

Cannery Row Chapter 14 Summary

  • Meanwhile, back at the ranch, er, Cannery Row, it's the break of dawn. Two soldiers and their dates have been up all night.
  • The four cross the town and sit on a little beach by the Hopkins Marine Station.
  • Suddenly a grumpy man with a dog and a flashlight comes out to tell them to beat it (sound familiar?).
  • One of the soldiers knows just what to do. He "kindly" tells him to "'take a flying fuggut the moon'" (14.5).
  • Well, solved that one.
