The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Chapter 73

By Mark Haddon

Chapter 73

  • Christopher decides to go into flashback mode again.
  • His mother and father used to argue a lot, and sometimes he wondered if they might get divorced.
  • He says most of their problems came from the stress of taking care of him. He used to be much harder to take care of when he was younger, evidently: he smashed things, refused to eat or drink, and screamed when he was confused.
  • Yeah, it used to be pretty bad.
