Nonetheless, Holden discloses how “When something perverty [sic] like that happens, I start sweating like a bastard. That kind of stuff’s happened to me about twenty times since I was a kid.” (Salinger, 193).

Holden 's inability to differentiate between his emotions leads to his breakdown when he sees Phoebe at the

In the novel, “Purple Hibiscus” Kambilli’s relationship with her father- Eugene has a negative impact on her life because it did not allow her to relate to people her own age due to the limitations that her father’s catholic religion had enforced.

This moment is monumental in the story, as it is both imitation and irony, and shows the reader how Mick truly feels about his drinking, and his epiphany. After seeing his son throw up from alcohol, he then proceeded to drag him home with annoyance. After his epiphany, Mick said, ““Never again, never again, not if I live to be a thousand!”” (O’Connor, 302).

Another way that the author uses irony is when Mick is dragging Larry home, and gets embarrassed by his son’s actions: “Who are ye laughing at?...Go away, ye bloody bitches!” (O’Connor, 302).
