A truly original work by one of the most famous authors in the last century, J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye has been studied and written about for decades. While Salinger’s other works set in New York during the 1950s, such as Franny and Zoey, have also received acclaim, The Catcher in the Rye remains his most iconic work.
This story centers around the restless 16-year-old Holden Caulfield. Caulfield narrates his own story, which begins with the retelling of his fourth expulsion from an East Coast preparatory school. Holden struggles to find a connection to anyone since he is constantly annoyed or irritated by his peers as well as superiors. Holden is even quick to anger, and a scuffle with a classmate ultimately motivates him to leave school and trek into New York on his own, without letting his parents know. In the city, Holden has strange encounters with people, generally do to his odd questions and confusing approach to strangers. He continuously attempts to interact with women and girls his own age, as well as several figures from his past, though his interactions often fall flat.
