Rex Walls in
The Glass Castle
Rex and Rose Mary Walls (1956)
Rex Walls is a very intelligent man who teaches his children very valuable lessons that can be useful in life. He teaches them to stick up for themselves, to be independent, and to face their fears.
Rex has many negative characteristics about himself. Rex has a drinking problem. This effects his social behavior towards his wife Rose Mary and also his overall attitude. Rex struggles financially and can never keep a stable environment for his family.
In the first part of the book, Rex is seen as a horrible parent and husband. He is unable to support his family. He struggles to provide them with food and shelter most of the time, and also can come off as an unsupportive parent. Rex's character does not have much sympathy when it comes to his childrens wants or needs.

Rex has many different characteristics about himself that make him stand out in the Glass Castle and makes his role harder to figure out.
