Chapter Four discussion


In what ways does the novel depict Brooklyn and Manhattan as distinct from one another? Do you get the impression that Parker prefers one over the other? If so, do you consider her a reliable source, or can you think of reasons why she might be biased toward one neighborhood over the other?

    I agree, Toni. To quote from Chapter Four, when Parker was in Brooklyn, “Something in her simply fused together when she was there.” I like your comment that she must feel “love and security” there. Very interesting thought!
