During the course of the novel of ‘Deadly Unna?’ the readers are exposed to the negativity between the father and his son.

In his book Hunger of Memory, Richard Rodriguez writes on the feelings of grief, anger, and isolation he felt in his growing up separated from his family by his intellect, elaborating on these emotions and overall inspiring his readers, just as William Faulkner designates as the duty of the writer. In his first essay, William expresses just how alone and lost he felt not knowing anyone, as well as not knowing how to communicate with others, finding his only solace to be at home.

It seemed as if I was experiencing hell at one place and time in my life, I needed someone or something to become a safety net, a resting place, a sign of hope. I found God through all the craziness in my past and I found him to be everything I need. It seems as if I can count on him more than anyone in my life from him restoring me mind body and soul. He is the most important person in my life, he rescued me when I couldn’t hang on he told me to hold on. I believe that if he didn’t come when he did, I would literally be lost and because of him showing and making me feel that I am somebody, through compassion and overwhelming love I wouldn’t have achieved and conquered the things that I have
