Q: What waswrong with Derry's face? How did people react when they look at it?
Derry's face was disfigured when accidentally acid fell on his face. His face was frightening to look at and this made the onlookers recoil on seeing Derry. However, unlike Mr. Lamb, Derry was unable to take this disfiguration in his stride. He provided too much importance to the manner in which people behaved on perceiving his face.
