Description: 

In this novel the barbershop is associated entirely with Clarence Snopes. He is coming out of it, "moving in an effluvium of pomade" (186), when Horace first sees him in Jefferson, and later it is to the barber that he complains about the "durn lowlife jews" against whom America should have "drastic laws" (266). In this novel the barber himself is unnamed, but in his implied refusal to go along with such prejudice he resembles Henry Hawkshaw, the barber in "Dry September," a short story that was published in the same year as Sanctuary.
