Description: 

Grandpa's cook, Mandy, lives in a cabin "in the back yard" of the big house where her white employer lives (274). The narrator calls it both "Mandy's cabin" and "Mandy's house" (274, 276), but it seems likely that Grandpa owns it. It may have been a slave cabin in the past, like other backyard cabins in the Yoknapatawpha fictions, but the story does not explicitly say that. When Rodney is locked inside it, we learn that it has a "door" and at least two "windows" (276).
