Shiloh Section 6

By Bobbie Ann Mason

Section 6

  • That night, Norma Jean tells Leroy that his name means 'the king,' and Leroy asks if he's still king in their household.
  • Norma Jean says she isn't fooling around with anybody but when he asks whether she'd tell him if she were, she says she isn't sure. Uh oh…
  • He asks what her name means and she says it's Marilyn Monroe's real name, and that Norma comes from the Normans, who were invaders.
  • All these revelations must be making Leroy's eyes bug out because she tells him she'll go to Shiloh with him if he'll stop staring at her.
