The Day of the Locust Chapter 10

By Nathanael West

Chapter 10

  • Homer has literally nothing to do all day, but he doesn't mind. He loves to sit in the backyard, though he oddly chooses to face the back of his house rather than the gorgeous view at his back.
  • He especially loves watching a lizard. The lizard chills on a cactus all day, utterly failing to catch flies. This sight amuses Homer greatly.
