Biography: 

Quentin encounters this man on the streetcar in Cambridge. He "wears a derby hat and shined shoes and is holding a dead cigar stub" (86). Because it is the only empty seat in the car, Quentin sits beside him and, perhaps because the man is well-dressed, thinks over what his own experience reveals about the meaning of racial difference.
