Maggie White

Character Analysis

Maggie White is the wife of an optometrist and a guest at Billy's anniversary party, to which he has invited Kilgore Trout. Trout is a hit with the optometrists because they all think he is some kind of big successful type. Maggie is not too bright, but she's beautiful, and Trout chats her up with lies about his books and their plots.
