Janice Angstrom is Harry's wife. She is alcoholic, bitter, and negligent toward their child. Her marriage to Harry has cooled into a mutual discontent, and she is openly hostile towards him. She is particularly embittered by his abstention from alcohol and smoking, which she views as a passive-aggressive rebuke.
