An American woman whom Tony meets while traveling around the United States after graduation, Annie “hooks up” with him for three months. She wears plaid shirts, has a friendly demeanor, and is easygoing, which Tony contrasts to Veronica’s manner. Later in life, Tony wonders if he was too quick to assume that Annie was actually that easygoing, and if she did want something more. Annie is thus another example of a woman with whom Tony retains a certain distance, in large part out of fear of getting hurt.
