Pancake lives in a small room that is really servant's quarters, hammering out stories on his Underwood. The room is attached to a larger house owned by Mr and Mrs Meade, large landowners in Charlottesville. The Meade's rent out cottages along the golf course where Pancake likes to fish, taking breaks from his writing. His writing and his drinking accompany him through his days, until he pays a visit on the newest tenant.
