Part 1 Chapter 6 Summary

Chapter 6 is a short chapter that reintroduces a nameless male character who was first discussed in Chapter 2. He is described as a great cook with an extensive spice collection. For the first time, we learn that the scene takes place in India, but this gentleman cooks Western meals, like Mexican food, very well. He also keeps an abundant amount of food in his home.

Part 1 Chapter 6 Analysis

This chapter, unlike Chapter 2, in which our nameless main character is introduced, is written in first person. Both this chapter and Chapter 2 are printed in italics, clearly showing that the author wants these scenes set apart from the rest of the book. We do not yet know who this character is or what his significance is.
