The Glass Castle Part II, Chapter 15

By Jeannette Walls

Part II, Chapter 15

  • To make money, Brian and Jeannette collect cans and bottles and recycle them for change.
  • Every day, the kids pass a "cathouse" (2.15.3) called the Green Lantern. The women there do, um, rather different things for money.
  • Brian, who is six, often chats with one of the women outside. He says she's nice.
  • The women wave to the kids when they walk by. (Waves are the only service they offer for free.)
