The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger

I think ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ is a good place to move on to from Lawrence Durrell’s, ‘The Alexandria Quartet‘.  It is probably the most readily available book in the world and its only 214 small pages long.

How about it gang?

Published in 1951, this homage to the difficult teenage years, was J.D. Salinger’s best known work and is still sells around 250,000 copies per year.

I’m sure we will all have plenty to say about this well-known American classic.

Read on, fellow book lovers.

In 1998 the Modern Library published a list of the 100 best novels of the 20th Century. This blog is to function as an online book-club to discuss the books included on this list. Please feel free to leave comments regarding your thoughts on the novel examined in each post. PS. Please ignore the Reader's List.
