I hadn't read the book even in Japanese yet, but I used to watch the drama with Japanese dubs. The first time we meet her she's described point blank as an alcoholic and a bitch.

There are thousands, maybe tens of thousands of women like this in the city. This book was a little hard to follow, personally I like when characters are more developed and there are less.
