This is identity is used for Patrick Bateman to exist in the Wall Street society he exists in. This world is comprised of consumerist, sexist, misogynistic values, where without the same suit, haircut, apartment, name card, and restaurant reservations, you are deemed inferior to others. The descriptive language portraying this world, labeled as “boring” by critics, stating “the jerky, plotless narrative is boring, … in which brand names replace most nouns and adjectives.” (1991, Plate). This assists in creating the empty culture Bateman is immersed in. The obsession with fashion labels is ironised by Ellis: “Price is wearing a six-button wool and silk suit by Ermenegildo Zegna, a cotton shirt with French cuffs by Behar, a Ralph Lauren silk tie and a leather wing tips by Fratelli Rossetti.” (Ellis 1991, p.5) This establishes the level of detail Bateman goes into when he is describing others around him.
Thus, Robinson introduces the theme of isolation.“He was a gentleman from sole to crown, clean favored, and imperially slim” (3-4). “And he was rich - yes, richer than a king - and admirably schooled in every grace” (9-10).

More specifically, the workers resent Crooks because of his color, and as a result, he is segregated from the men and their activities. However, Crooks can not just quit his job or move from place to place, as he, similar to Candy, is not likely to get another job. An example in the novel reads, “‘Cause I’m black. They play cards in there, but I can’t play because I’m black.’” It can be argued that Crooks faces the most isolation out of all the characters in Of Mice and Men, as other people’s struggles do not compare to the issues he deals with everyday. While Candy has a hard time on the work front, he is welcomed wholeheartedly by the other men, and converses with and joins them as if he was still a young man.
