What risks are inherent in closing a story like "Seperating" by John Updike with a question such as "Why?" Can a story about a middle-class suburban family bear the weight of a question like that? What does the young boy mean by that question--and what does his father hear in it?

I don't know what the significance of Why is...the whole story confuses me so much

    I haven't read this story but from what I've read about it, it concerns a breakup of a marriage. The boy's question "Why?" is a logical question about why his family life is being disrupted.

    where have you heard this from? and are there any sites that would help me answer my question?
