Red Sammy's Wife

Character Analysis

Red Sammy's wife is a "tall burnt-brown woman with hair and eyes lighter than her skin" (29). She helps Red Sammy run The Tower restaurant and is apparently responsible for taking people's orders and preparing them. Unfortunately, she's not very efficient at this task. She thinks June Star is cute for doing her tap dance routine; June Star does not respond kindly to the woman's praise. Interestingly, she doesn't trust anyone, including Red Sammy.
