Your report might be more interesting if you analized one of his works, something unique.
I believe the short story titled "Out of Breath" is a hidden way of announcing he is gay. If you analize the text you may find that when he is mentioning "an inability to talk to his new wife" he is speaking in code, he is actually expressing a lack of desire to have sex with his wife. Reading and analizing a work in this way can be fun, and it is a skill you will need through out your education and working life, so just do it.
I don't know your age so I hope I have not offended you, your family, or your teachers. If so my apologies in advance.
