The narrator of "Monk" 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 in this story the narrative does not explore what the town knows or thinks.
