Please address one or more of the following questions in your response. Remember to keep these brief–about a paragraph or so in length.
1) Pay close attention to this story’s structure and use of flashback and memory. Why do you think Gaitskill made the choices she did? In particular, why dos the very last memory appear at the end of the story?
2) Why are we never shown the father and Kitty interacting during the story’s present action?
3) How do you feel toward the father character, and how does Gaitskill achieve that effect?
