What You Pawn I Will Redeem: 10:00 P.M. Summary & Analysis

Irene leads Jackson into the women’s restroom and promptly puts her hand in his pants. Jackson describes Irene as “wonderfully fat” and starts to grab and squeeze her body all over, noticing that “every part of her body felt like a large, warm, soft breast.”
Like his relationship with Kay, Jackson sees Irene as another woman who can provide him with an escape from his struggles and hardships.
