Cannery Row Chapter 30 Summary

  • Par-tay! Like at most parties, everyone's a little uncomfortable at first before loosening up.
  • Doc serves up the food and, afterwards, they listen to music.
  • Then Doc reads a sad poem aloud, but it's interrupted by a huge, awesome fight.
  • When the fight's over, everyone bets back to merry-making.
