Essay Topic 1

Austin is an idealist, and even in the midst of his breakdown he thinks about the people without typewriters and golf clubs. Is he experiencing twinges of yuppie guilt? Pick specific instances from the text that lead you to believe one way or another.

Essay Topic 2

What is the significance of one brother loving beginnings and one loving endings? Are they true opposites in every way, or is there an overlap?
