Appears in The Library
.Jerry’s doesn’t believe that he owes some money to the New York Public Library, so he looks up his old high school girlfriend, Sherry Becker. Jerry meets with her at the coffee shop and he finds out that his recollection of Sherry was a bit different than reality. For one, Sherry says she wore a purple dress, and not an orange dress as Jerry originally thought. Second, the book they read to each other was actually Tropic of Capricorn, not Tropic of Cancer.
