Chapter 33 Summary

"Too Big"

Tom Crick returns to the summer of 1943 as a time when he had a child, correcting to confirm that Mary had a child. Dick continued with his visits and his education with Mary. In passing along Mary's version of what took place between her and Dick, Mary stated that Dick's penis was "too big," that he could not have ever made her pregnant, and that he did not have intercourse with her. Tom Crick expresses doubt that this could be completely true - he sees Mary as an experimenter.

At the same time, Tom begins his sexual relationship with Mary. He ties the entry of the third party, Freddie Parr, and he then states conclusively for the first time in the narrative that as a result, Dick got Freddie drunk, hit him on the head with a bottle and pushed him in the river.
