A Shocking Accident by Graham Greene LaDarius McKinley 1st period Hindsley May 3, 2018
Jerome is a kid that did not know his father growing up because the whole time he was trying to find out how his father died.
The story takes place in Naples, Italy during his childhood. Jerome received a phone call saying that his father got in a accident at first he was told that his father was shot but was later told that a pig fell on him.
Jerome was afraid that someone will write a story about his father being killed by a pig. Because he does not know that a comic was being made about his father's death. He pretended that his father worked for the British Secret Service. But he actually is an author for a living.
The resolution is that he wanted to find out how his father died and he found out but he was told two different things but when they told him that his father was killed by a pig he did not believe them.
The theme of the story is that he found out what his father did for a living and how he died because that was important because at the beginning of the story he was told his father got into an accident. My personal reaction is that I felt the same way that would make me sad because he did not even get to know or see his father in person.
