Well I just finished my paper. And I'm left wondering if McLendon cheats on his wife. He reapeatedly says, "Haven't I told you [not to wait up]?", during their fight. So this must be a regular thing, him coming home late. What does he do while he's out so late? Any ideas?

I think the possibilities there are endless. He could be doing any number of things, but I'm wondering if that really has anything to do with anything, you know? Somethings are better left untouched in order to retain focus on your thesis.

But it's a good question. What he sleeping with Minnie? Has he just been out drinking with the boys? Does he lynch black people often? Does he have a job that runs until all hours of the morning? This is why I like Faulker. He seduces you with unanswered/able questions.
