Cannery Row Chapter 26 Summary

  • We pause again for a small break from the plot.
  • A couple of little boys are up to no good down on Cannery Row. They wonder if they can get into Doc's laboratory to see if he has babies in jars.
  • One of the boys teases the other about his father's suicide. Bottom line: kids stink.
