-Of Mice and Men-


Curley is the boss’s son and is known to wear high-heeled boots to distinguish himself from the field hands. Rumoured to be a champion prize-fighter, he is a confrontational, mean-spirited, and aggressive young man who seeks to compensate for his small stature by picking fights with larger men like Lennie. He is recently married and extremely jealous of any man who looks at or talks with his flirtatious young wife. Lennie crushes his hand, earning Curley’s future enmity.
