The Woman in the Window
A. J. Finn
Contributed by Eleanor Sherer
Chapter 4

The author conveys Anna’s habit of late night watching of movies. The fact that the first activity she does when she wakes up is to watch her neighbors is quite depressing. In addition, the author states how she considers starting her day-drinking spree of red wine early in the morning. Her habitual alcohol consumption further diminishes her character. As she sits in her house, Anna watches the family in house number 207 through her Nikon Camera. The author shows the extreme nature of her prying habit by mentioning Anna’s use of a camera.  

Anna’s encounter with her tenant shows her desperation and longing for the affection of a feeling sorry for herself as she acknowledges that she has stopped making herself look beautiful and presentable. She mentions weight-gain and wrinkles as body features that could have resulted in David’s lack of interest in her. This communicates to the audience the deplorable state in which Anna was in after the deaths of Ed and Olivia.
