Dry September

The Bank Clerk

Character Analysis

The banker dated Minnie after his wife died. The town scorned Minnie for being in a relationship with him, but apparently didn't hold it against him. His life, it seems, goes quite well after he dumps her, a fact Minnie's "friends" enjoy sharing with her.
