Human anger plays a big role in the development if the characters and plot of this novel. The main character, Carl, seems to be overrun with anger because of what happened to his mother, he is angry recently because of the incedent with his daughter's cat, and other characters are angry too, like Fred for example.

It seems that Matt Cohen wanted to write his story about characters who were put into situations that cause anguish and anger, like Carl and the death of his mother. This core of anger is the central part of the book.
