He is self-assured and conservative in his thinking. He gets very angry and nervous and in a rush attack starts breaking everything, including the gas lead. There follows an afternoon lull in which the polyglot staff arjold their hopes and dreams. Hannah rated it it was ok May 05, That is reported to Marango who thinks everybody is against him. A young Jew who is in charge of the pastrycooks with Raymond.


Some of the workers go out to have their supper but some have it just there. Refresh and try again. He is very calm and reflexive and is not usually affected by the rush of the kitchen. A young Irish lad.
