    Thanks for these notes Jeffrey. Since most of class was devoted to group work based on a handout, it would be helpful to include the prompts everyone worked on.

    Also, as we discussed as a class, the narration/point of view is pretty complicated in this novel (and the “Dear V.” letters and Jeevan’s thoughts were instances of first-person point of view included in the 3rd person narrative). Can you revise these notes to add these points? Thanks.
