Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 2, Section 20 Summary

  • Billy's not actually a Catholic. His father doesn't believe in anything, and his mother has been looking for the right church.
  • Billy learned to play the organ from his mother.
  • His mother never decided on a church, but she did develop an interest in crucifixes. She buys one in a gift shop in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which goes up on Billy's wall.
