Crooked House, Playground At Pixie Woods, A Children's Theme Park, Stockton, California

The title refers to a nursery rhyme ("There Was a Crooked Man"), a common theme of the author. Narrator Charles's fiancie Sophia says it refers not to dishonesty, but rather "we hadn't been able to grow up independent. . .twisted and twining," meaning unhealthily interdependent on the intensely strong personality of the family patriarch, Aristide Leonides.
