Cannery Row

by John Steinbeck

Cannery Row Chapter 19 Summary

  • Back at Cannery Row, everyone (especially Henri) is obsessed with the flagpole skater that Holman's department store hired.
  • There's one question that everyone's afraid to ask, though: how does he go to the bathroom?
  • Finally one night, after fighting with his wife, Richard Frost finally screws up the courage to ask. And he learns the answer: "He's got a can up there."
