Quote"He's impossible, Marta," she says. Absolutely impossible. Does't have any friends. Sleeps all day. Watches TV all night. Never showers. Refuses to cut his hair. Pushes his dirty dishes under the bed or stuffs them in drawers with his dirty underwear. I'm at my wit's end" (Page 1, Paragraph 2)
