Cat's Cradle Chapter 64 Summary

Peace and Plenty

  • "Papa," Mona, and Frank join their visitors on the review stand. John can't take his eyes off Mona. She is, in his words, "rapturously serene" (64.6).
  • And we picked that quote because it's the most underplayed of his praises.
  • After John details all the perfection that is Mona, the xylophone is rolled over to her. She begins to play "When Day is Done" as "Papa" greets them. Pretty jaunty tune all things considered.
