First thing an observant reader will pick out, even from just the first paragraph, is the good use of foreshadowing, "I owned that car along with my brother Henry Junior.

It is hard for him to deal with throughout the story because it causes him to think of many different things, not only about what he did, but about the man he killed. No matter what it may be, death was a huge part of the war and one of the hardest things to face and deal with.

Mary F. LyonsLCS 360 AApril 23rd 2014The Crack Up | At one point of life, everyone has to deal with loss.
