The Personal Assistant
23 years old, an only from Orlando, Florida, with a mother who descended into welfare when father left. From 7 years old she ran the household. Efficient, pleasant, self-effacing. Very beautiful, but doesn’t know it because she’s blind. Came to San Francisco to be a landscape gardener in Golden Gate Park and was swept away by the dead poet and his ideas. A true devotee of Jerusalem’s metaphysics. Appears almost spookily calm at times.
