Patricia Uris Character Analysis

Stanley Uris’s wife. Like Stanley, Patricia is Jewish. She grew up in New York City. Patricia is a prudish woman with lingering feelings of inferiority over the anti-Semitism she experienced during her teen years. In July 1972, she and Stanley move to Georgia after she takes a job as a teacher in Traynor, a small town forty miles south of Atlanta. She likes to watch game shows, particularly Family Feud, which she is watching on the night of May 28, 1985 when she discovers Stanley’s body in the bathtub, his arms and wrists slit open.
