Gene is the narrator of the novel and appears at two different time periods: as a middle-aged man re-visiting Devon fifteen years after being a student there, and, for the majority of the novel, as a sixteen and seventeen-year-old student during World War II. The novel is written in the past tense, and we assume that Gene\'s narration is triggered by his re-visitation of his old school when he is thirty-two. And although the older narrator seems long past the emotional turmoil that marked his sc...

My Reading/Writing Essay
Reading and writing are both great subjects that I enjoy both doing, but I favor reading over writing. This is because reading is a way for me to get out of my own world for a moment and escape into a different world just by reading a book. Reading also exercises your brain and you learn new things just from reading, which is good for you. The way I feel about writing is that if I am familiar with it and enjoy writing about it, then the...

Should The United States increase border security? Why or why not?

My husband and I got married at eight in the morning. It was winter, freezing, the trees encased in ice and a few lone blackbirds balancing on telephone wires. We were in our early 30s, considered ourselves hip and cynical, the types who decried the institution of marriage even as we sought its status. During our wedding brunch we put out a big suggestion box and asked people to slip us advice on how to avoid divorce; we thought it was a funny, clear-eyed, grounded sort of thing to do, although ...
