1. After David’s father emerges alone from the basement, he drinks liquor. What’s the significance of the brand he drinks? And why does David say that he “held the glass to the rain-streaked window as if he were examining it for impurities”?

Father is drinking Old Grand-Dad whiskey, obviously a boot-leg brand made by the owner of a local still. Its purity would have been questionable.
