Product description

Review

I liked it very much indeed, more than anything for a long time. -- Samuel Beckett --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Jerome David Salinger, born New York City, Jan. 1, 1919, established his reputation on the basis of a single novel, The Catcher in the Rye (1951), whose principal character, Holden Caulfield, epitomized the growing pains of a generation of high school and college students. The public attention that followed the success of the book led Salinger to move from New York to the remote hills of Cornish, N.H. Before that he had published only a few short stories; one of them, A Perfect Day for Bananafish, which appeared in The New Yorker in 1949, introduced readers to Seymour Glass, a character who subsequently figured in Franny and Zooey (1961) and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenter and Seymour- An Introduction (1963), Salinger's only other published books. Of his 35 published short stories, those which Salinger wishes to preserve are collected in Nine Stories (1953). --This text refers to the paperback edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extreamly awful print
By Danielle Jones on 15 October 2019
Back of the book will give a glimpse into the quality of this print, spelling mistakes and sentences which makes no sense. The print is wonky on pages and varied sized throughout. Insane that this was $21 as it's flimsy and obviously the cheapest print. Awful.
