The Glass Castle Part II, Chapter 13

By Jeannette Walls

Part II, Chapter 13

  • Dad gets a job as an electrician.
  • Sometimes the family eats out at a place called the Owl Club, but most of the time they buy a huge sack of beans and eat it for the whole month. They could probably use all the natural gas generated by this diet to heat the house.
  • When not eating beans, the family sits around and reads. How cozy.
