Chapter Nineteen discussion
The concept of memory is explored in this story in a variety of ways – Parker’s grandmother’s physical loss of memory, Parker’s lack of information about her own family history as told through the photos she cannot identify, and Jerry’s memories of his youth on 48th Street. Does memory seem to impact each of the main characters positively or negatively in this story? In what way does our own memory influence our actions?
