There are no secrets in this small town. Everyone knows that the Coach's wife, Flora, ran off and left him. But no one talks to him about it. He still teaches baseball by day and has his wonton noodles with shrimp balls every night at the noodle stand. Silent and solitary, no one knows him well enough to know that he keeps his room the same way it was when Flora was around, with her brightly colored clothes still hanging all over the place.
