Ed Park Personal Days
Below are ten quotations from Part 1 of Ed Park’s novel Personal Days. Write an essay of 2- to 2½-pages that uses four of these passages, plus two that you have found on your own, to describe/explain the experience of Park’s white-collar office workers. Be sure your essay has a thesis statement, but keep your introduction to no more than 2-3 sentences. While I want you to reference four of the passages below (plus two of your own), some of them are a little long, so you should avoid quoting them in their entirety. Use paraphrase and commentary to show that you understand the underlying ideas. Please submit the exam as a word document by the date and time listed above.
