Essay on the book “Funny Boy”.
Description Prompt: Was the friendship between Idgie and Ruth a deep friendship or a romantic relationship? How can we explain the intense language used in the novel that is very often used for romantic relationships (Example: “Crush,” “I love you, ” “I’d die/kill for you” etc.)? Does a relationship need to be sexual in order to be romantic? If the relationship between Idgie and Ruth is romantic, why does no one in the novel condemn this same-sex union?
