Who was Derry? What problems did he have? Derry was a young boy who came to Mr. Lamb’s garden. One side of his face had been burnt by acid. He was reserved and did not like to mix with people. He would always think that he was the ugliest person on the earth. Related posts: Derry and Mr. Lamb both are victims of physical impairment, but their attitudes towards life are completely different. Elaborate. How did the narrator and the other members react to the presence of water in the ship? “It ate my face up. It ate me up.” Who said these words? Why? Why does Derry tell Mr. Lamb that he is afraid of seeing himself in the mirror in the story ‘On The Face of It’?
