By Nathanael West

Chapter 12

  • Homer, of course, can't stop thinking about Faye. He's crying even more than he used to, which is saying a lot.
  • Finally, Homer gets up the courage to walk by the Greeners' apartment, though he doesn't have the chutzpah to knock. The next day, he returns with flowers and wine.
