    Ever Since the Fire No money. No family. No home. Just a lot of stolen purses, bringing dulled colors to the sepulchral and somber room. Every day I wake up from my imaginary bed. The still freshly charred floor, covered in ashes. Lungs darkened by the smoky room, and my heavy heart still in pain. The sounds of screams and fire, ringing through my ears.

    I saw a man at a coffeehouse today. He just sat there drinking his coffee and staring out the window. He wasn 't sitting with anyone and his deep brown eyes looked so sad. But strangely enough I 've seen this man before. Not on the train home or at a concert or anything, but every year on my birthday since I was three.

    Analyzing the two short stories, “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, by Flannery O’Connor and “St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves”, by Karen Russell, I discovered that they both had similar themes of identity however; they were presented in different ways between each text. The misfit from “A Good Man” had no real identity according to the story. His life was unclear to the reader. To identify himself, he used the term misfit and he fulfills this term by acting in crazy ways. The characters,…
