Please read until page 240 of Motherless Brooklyn, and respond to the two questions below. The TOTAL for the two responses should be a minimum of 200 and a maximum of 300 words (so, about 100-150 words for each question). Please cite at least one passage in each response.
- Look carefully at Lionel’s interactions with Kimmery in her apartment. What is different about Lionel’s relationship with Kimmery as his relationships with everyone else? In other words, what is different about how Lionel feels around her, and about how she treats him?
- How would you describe Lionel’s conversation with Gerard? How does Lionel feel around Gerard, and how does Gerard treat Lionel?

While I encourage you to read and be inspired by each other’s responses, each response must be completed individually. Feel free to quote each other, if you like. If you do, just make sure you give credit to the original author. If your post is too similar to any posts above yours, I’ll assume you copied it/them.
The responses are always due before class on the due date. You must attend class in order to be eligible for a grade on your response.
You may not see your response when you post it. This is because I need to approve it first. Please don’t email me asking if it posted. Assume it did.

In the event that I didn’t receive your response because of a technical error, you can hand in your hard copy.
