Relationship Analysis: Clay & Tony The extract from the novel "Thirteen Reasons Why" written by Jay Asher and published in 2007 deals with an interaction between Tony and Clay in Tony's car, during which Tony informs Clay that the next cassette is about him. The relationship between them can be characterized as a developing trusting, caring but also serious relationship that however starts off as uncomfortable and distrustful. That becomes clear by the serious and demanding tone, the first tense but then caring body language and the first nervous but then trusting behavior. Concerning the behavior and interaction of the boys, one can conclude that Clay does not really trust Tony at first and they do not have a close relationship, which becomes clear when he does not admit to knowing what Tony is talking about (II.4, 13). Furthermore Clay is acting so overwhelmed and nervous, that he can not even look Tony in the eyes (1.9, 16). That underlines the discomfort and distrust he feels around Tony. Throughout the conversation that behavior changes and Clay finally manages to look at Tony (1.17) which implies that Clay's trust increases as the conversation goes.

the conversation "With tears falling, I roll my head to face him." (1.33). Tony "leans his head back, eyes closed" (1.18) and at one point does not answer Clay (1.20). This behavior implies that he also feels discomfort and maybe does not know what exactly he should say and how to properly talk to Clay. In addition he tries to comfort him by laying a hand on Clay's shoulder (1.31), which can be seen as a friendly gesture and symbol for support and him genuinely being there for Clay. At the end he doesn't make eye contact and "turns the ignition“ (II.32, 33), so he basically does not leave Clay the choice but to listen to his tape, with him at that moment. One can conclude that Tony does not want Clay to face that difficult situation alone and wants to be there with him and for him, when he does With regard to their body language, one can conclude that Clay is nervous, anxious and uncomfortable as he covers his face and presses his palm against his face (II.6-7). That also underlines his inner struggle and distress with the fact that Tony knows everything that is on the tapes. Proof of this can also be found when he has his eyes shut and knuckles pressed against his forehead (I. 16). Tony lays his hand on Clay's shoulder, which reveals his intention to comfort Clay and help him through the situation he is facing. Furthermore he “leans his head back, eyes closed" (1.18). That implies that he also is somewhat overwhelmed with the situation, as he knows what Clay is about to face and does not know how to help him get through it. One can also conclude from that, that Tony empathizes with Clay and that can bring them closer and more trusting towards each other. Referring to their language, one can conclude that Clay asks a lot of questions at the beginning of the conversation e.g. “What?“ (1.4,11), “What are you talking about?“ (1.4). He does that because he is denying that he knows about the tapes and therefore tries to Relationship Analysis: Clay & Tony avoid Tony's questions about them. That again underlines the distrust between them in the beginning and Clay being uncomfortable but also his nervousness. Later on he uses imperatives e.g. "Then answer.." (1.28) or “Tell me..“ (1.24). That creates a demanding and urgent tone and his need for answers from Tony. Tony uses comforting and calming phrases such as "It's okay" (1.8) to calm Clay down and show that he cares about him as well as that he is there for him. Furthermore he often uses Clay's name when he is talking to him e.g. "It's okay, Clay." (1.15) or "Clay, I'm not joking." (1.27). That underlines Tony's serious tone and makes Clay feel more addressed and also the conversation a lot more personal. In addition he uses an anaphora e.g. "Because it's about you, Clay." and "The next tape is about you." (1.29). By repeating the words "about you" he again makes Clay understand the seriousness in his words. Lastly he as well uses imperatives e.g. "Listen to it" (1.31), "..don't leave.." (1.31). That way he gives Clay no other choice but to listen to the tapes with him in the car. That way he expresses his caring side for Clay again and that he does not want him to go through it alone. In conclusion one can observe how the behavior, language and tone of the boys changes throughout the conversation and how they start off as almost strangers that don't trust each other, both are uncomfortable and demanding answers from the other to caring and more open acquaintances who go through a difficult situation together and are their for each other. Yet Tony is the one that is more in control in the situation, as he is the comforting one who makes Clay listen to his tape with him.
