Description: 

Gavin Stevens and his married sister Maggie live in separate parts of the house has been in the Stevens family for at least two generations. Here is the way another occupant of the house - Gavin's nephew, Charles Mallison - explains the living arrangement in a later fiction, The Town (1957), about a slightly earlier time in the family's history: "We were all living with Grandfather then. . . . he and Uncle Gavin had one side of the house, Grandfather in his bedroom and what we called the office downstairs, and Uncle Gavin on the same side upstairs, where he had built an outside stairway so he could go and come from the side yard, and Mother and Father and Cousin Gowan on the other side." "Grandfather" does not appear in this story, and it's likely that his 'office' has become Gavin's "private sitting room," where the story begins (148). Charles has his own room "upstairs" (204).
