Cannery Row Chapter 25 Summary

  • Everything's going great on Cannery Row now that Mack and the boys are back in the fold.
  • The Palace is somehow the center of all the sunshine and rainbows.
  • Mack pretends that Hazel is into astrology in order to find out Doc's birthday, because they figure they'll throw the next party as a birthday party.
  • Doc is suspicious (understandably) and doesn't give his real birthday.
