Disgrace Chapter 21 Summary
David and Rosalind meet for coffee. She keeps looking at his gross, misshapen ear.
Rosalind says she heard about his "trial" at the University and knocks him for not doing a better job defending himself.
Then Rosalind tells David that she saw Melanie recently. She disses him for throwing his life away over a young girl like her.
David gets all hot and bothered by the mention of Melanie. He wonders if it's over. He feels old and regretful.
David goes to Melanie's play. He wishes he could get a sign to tell him what to do. He thinks about Melanie naked.
David suddenly remembers a German hitchhiker that he picked up one time and had sex with. He thinks of all the lovers he's had and how they've all changed his life in some way.
Then a spitball hits David in the head and he hears someone making hissing noises. It's Ryan, Melanie's boyfriend.
David leaves. Ryan follows him into the parking lot. Ryan tells him to "stay with [his] own kind" and that "Melanie will spit in [his] eye if she sees [him]" (21.66-71). David is shocked to hear this.
David drives around and finds a hooker. She's clearly either drunk or high. She gives him oral sex in the car. David's like, whoa, I forgot that feeling better can be that easy!
