Summary
After their divorce his wife promptly married her American lover of ten months and moved out of Bloomington, Indiana, to the East Coast, taking their ten-year-old daughter along.
Tom and Edith went to United States. Edith was doing her doctorate in Zoology and Tom in American Literature.
They have a child named Suzie. They're living in Campus view.
Tomas and Edith never traveled during holidays, like most other foreign students on a strict budget.
They were often sleeping in separate bedrooms and it causes the small matter of their piddling sex life. Tom failed to give attention to Edith's sexual needs because of his busyness. Edith complained about being sexually neglected.
Edith decided to file a divorce. Tomas did not feel like contesting any of the allegations in the court. The Legal Services of Indiana simply stated that the marriage was "
irretrievably broken".
Suzie wrote a letter to his dad that they have a sailboat and she enjoys living in a big house.
Tomas went to the laboratory to pick up the remaining things that Edith left. He saw Mrs. Weinstein and guide him in their special laboratory. There, he found an strange kind of creature.
Tomas decides to call his wife, in her new home on the East Coast. The call does not go well; he feels himself begging. His wife says that perhaps she can take their daughter to visit Dumaguete. He falls asleep.
Mrs. Weinstein
