Biography: 

The narrator states that the people from Jefferson who get to know Monk first are the "customers" who go out to Fraser's to purchase moonshine whiskey (45). Later, during the seven years when he works and sleeps at the filling station, he frequently changes from overalls to "town clothes" and comes to Jefferson, probably on Saturday nights or Sundays (46). Then he is "known about town" (46), but the narrative does not explore what the town knows or thinks.

Note: 
CUT: They are "familiar" with him at least as "a youth not tall and already a little pudgy, as though he were thirty eight instead of eighteen, with the ugly, shrewdly foolish, innocent face whose features rather than expression must have gained him his nickname" (45). Such a contradictory description suggests that they actually know very little about him; in fact, we later learn that "Monk" isn't even his given name, it's "Stonewall Jackson Odlethrop" (47).
