In Chapter one of "The Outsiders," by S. E. Hinton, we learn from Ponyboy that Darry is working for a roofing company fixing roofs. He sees Sodapop rubbing Darry's back and he says that
"Darry is always pulling muscles; he roofs houses and he's always trying to carry two bundles of roofing up the ladder. I knew Soda would put him to sleep..." (pg 24)
Ponyboy talks about how Darry works too hard and he had to give up a scholarship to college in order to keep the family together.
in the book the outsider it only tells you he is a roofer
Darrel Curtis (Darry) works as a roofer. Ponyboy makes reference to Darry hauling stacks of shingles up a ladder.
