Stephanie Russo February 4 th , 2008 English 130 Thought Paper “The Store” In “The Store”, a short story from Lost in the City by Edward P. Jones, specific descriptions are hard to tell from the beginning. As one reads throughout the entire book, the attributes of the characters are similar and easy to tell from the start. I personally have only read two stories from Lost in the City , so I was kind of in the dark. It was hard for me to tell the race of the characters, especially the narrator. The story primarily did not use any dialect; therefore it was hard to get a Negro vibe. Only once it was mentioned did I realize that the narrator and other characters were black. “The Store” is a classic southern story, with a sense of sophistication. I have read several southern based stories that stereotype the southern community. I liked that the story was an easy, relatable read. I could literally imagine the store in my head, and the types of characters explained throughout. I enjoyed the authors description of the setting in which the story is based.
