Cannery Row Chapter 8 Summary

  • Time to meet some more people:
  • Mr. and Mrs. Malloy live in a big rusty boiler in the vacant lot. It's way nicer than it sounds, because so many awesome plants grow around it.
  • After Mr. Malloy becomes a "landlord" (by renting out space in the empty pipes lying around the lot), Mrs. Malloy starts to demand some of the finer things, like curtains. Too bad they don't have any windows.
