“A & P.’ Short Story Research

Write an 8-paragraph essay where you discuss two elements of John Updike’s short story “The A & P.” The two elements you must somehow address are these: 1) Why does Sammy quit his job at the A & P grocery store? 2) In quitting his job: does Sammy make the right decision? 
You must use the story itself as a source and all four outside sources that we examined during class: Saldivar, Laist, Blodgett. and Thompson.
