Cannery Row Chapter 27 Summary
- Word has gotten around about the party, and everyone in Cannery Row is getting super psyched and choosing gifts for Doc.
- But, since this is Cannery Row, the gifts are kind of odd—like stray-auto-parts weird.
- Doc gets wind of the party and wisely prepares by hiding the valuables and buying the food he's pretty sure the party-planners will forget.
