Re theoriginal question: "The Lottery" - Is it coming of age?
Yes,it's a coming of age story series that is about a group of young people. The Lottery is about a Michigan working class family that hits it very big in both the lottery and in their friends who help them all become accustom to the changes in their lives.
The second story, "Lady Guinevere", is about a group of friends and families that become engrossed in salt water fishing for bill fish.
The third and unfinished story, "Unique Adventures" brings the families in the previous stories together.
For one single character story, let me suggest a few. Ernest Bywater has any number of good offerings that qualify, but my favorites are "Finding Home" and "Odd Man in College." Try JRyter's "Country Boys Can Survive" universe and his "The Man from Eagle Creek".
Russ Hoisington"s Uncle Randy and an Angry Niece" is a coming of age story of a different flavor.
That should keep you going for a while.
