Please read until page 145 of Motherless Brooklyn, and respond to the prompt below. Your response should be a minimum of 200 and a maximum of 300 words. Please cite at least two passages in your response.
- In what ways can we see Lionel begin to change in pages 90-145? What aspects of his character come out that we may not have seen before? For each point you make, refer to a specific moment from these pages in order to illustrate your point. You can look for specific moments when Lionel does or say something surprising or funny. You’ll want to concentrate largely on his interactions with other characters. To earn full marks, you’ll want to make it clear that you read up until page 145, so try to refer to a few different moments spread throughout these pages.
