    About J.D. Salinger


    1. Jerome David Salinger was an American author, best known for his 1951 novel The Catcher in the Rye, as well as his reclusive nature His last original published work was in 1965 he gave his last interview in 1980 Raised in Manhattan, Salinger began writing short stories while in secondary school, and published several stories in the early 1940s before serving in World War II In 1948 he published the critically acclaimed story A Perfect Day for Bananafish in The New Yorker magazine, which became home to much of his subsequent work In 1951 Salinger released his novel The Catcher in the Rye, an immediate popular success His depiction of adolescent alienation and loss of innocence in the protagonist Holden Caulfield was influential, especially among adolescent readers The novel remains widely read and controversial, selling around 250,000 copies a year.The success of The Catcher in the Rye led to public attention and scrutiny Salinger became reclusive, publishing new work less frequently He followed Catcher with a short story collection, Nine Stories 1953 , a collection of a novella and a short story, Franny and Zooey 1961 , and a collection of two novellas, Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour An Introduction 1963 His last published work, a novella entitled Hapworth 16, 1924 , appeared in The New Yorker on June 19, 1965.Afterward, Salinger struggled with unwanted attention, including a legal battle in the 1980s with biographer Ian Hamilton and the release in the late 1990s of memoirs written by two people close to him Joyce Maynard, an ex lover and Margaret Salinger, his daughter In 1996, a small publisher announced a deal with Salinger to publish Hapworth 16, 1924 in book form, but amid the ensuing publicity, the release was indefinitely delayed He made headlines around the globe in June 2009, after filing a lawsuit against another writer for copyright infringement resulting from that writer s use of one of Salinger s characters from The Catcher in the Rye Salinger died of natural causes on January 27, 2010, at his home in Cornish, New Hampshire.

    2. Posso ufficialmente chiamare questo mese di aprile come il mese di Salinger Giusto qualche giorno fa ho finalmente letto Franny e Zooey e ieri, grazie ad un caro amico che mi ha gentilmente prestato la sua copia, ho letto anche I giovani, i tre racconti nuovi di zecca di J.D.Salinger nuovi almeno per i lettori italiani La bibliografia di Salinger si adesso leggermente allargata per il pubblico del nostro paese Fin qui tutto normale, finch non sono arrivato alla postfazione di Giorgio Vasta Qui l [...]

    3. This novella is undeniably odd and probably only really worth reading for the real Salingerites out there The sense of unreality that hangs over it is pervasive than in the other Glass family works the others you might doubt, but probably won t disbelieve All the same, it was fun for me, in the middle of a necessary Salinger fest, and it does give great insight into the person of Seymour he shapes so much of the family s later actions but the reader knows him personally almost not at all After [...]

    4. Salinger at his most aimless and Sisyphean The extraneous detail adds little to the glass family s literary identity other than stressing their precocious dexterity to unbelievable lengths The idea that a seven year old kid would write this letter home to his family from camp ruins the narrative before it can even begin to develop out of its embryonic state Further, the writing is dilapidated and stale just steeped with unbelievable haughtiness Salinger has no focus here, other than pushing forw [...]

    5. I feel deeply moved by reading this book and even though the main concern of everyone in here is either can or cannot the young prodigious Seymour Glass be the author of this touching, intimate, spiritual letter, I don t consider this matter to be relevant at all If Salinger considered the matter of credibility important, he would easily attributed this letter to an older alter ego of Seymour but regardless of everything, he didn t This too, has a meaning It testifies our ability to transcend th [...]

    6. I first read this in an anthology of Salinger s work while doing research for a term paper on the Glass family It is a letter from camp written by seven year old Seymour Glass, main character of A Perfect Day for Bananafish After its appearance in The New Yorker in 1966, Salinger quietly disappeared and stopped publishing altogether.In 1996, a small publishing house in Virginia announced that it would reprint Hapworth but shortly before the books were to be shipped, Salinger changed his mind, an [...]

    7. Hapworth is like an unpolished gem Most people will stumble over it countless times, never giving it a second glance But eventually someone sees its potential, picks it up, takes it home, and with the utmost care, begins the painstaking process of cleaning, polishing and sculpting it until its beauty shines brightly At face value, there isn t much to see in Hapworth Its reward lies in understanding its function This is neither a gripping tale, nor a self contained piece It s merely an exaggerate [...]

    8. Salinger s famously un re published Glass family novella An excellent account of this great publishing disaster, recounted by the publisher, can be found here It has a tendency to suddenly reappear on, then disappear from, the internet I myself got a copy in the most delightful black market fashion Having struck up a conversation with a customer about Salinger, who had recently died and who I was rather publicly mourning with a pleasantly profitable front counter display, we rolled around to the [...]

    9. I am a big fan of Salinger s work and was delighted to read this long lost addition to the Glass family saga that I think actually predates the published volumes This story was original published in the New Yorker, taking up the entire issue it s of a novella than a short story But it was never published anywhere else, lapsed into obscurity, and in the days before the internet, unless you happened to find a copy of the New Yorker or get it on microfilm, you were out of luck Apparently a univers [...]

    10. Seymour Glass, when you will never not amaze me with your dubious genius

    11. Piccolo capolavoro di uno dei miei scrittori preferiti La filosofia in bocca a un ragazzino che scrive una lunga lettera ai genitori da un campeggio dove si trova in vacanza col suo fratellino Filosofia di ogni cosa, del linguaggio innanzi tutto, e anche nella traduzione in Italiano si gusta questo avvincente a per la lingua, per il pensiero, per il dubbio su tutte le cose dell esistenza, per la vita e il suo contrario, un inno alla gioia illustrato da un bambino che presto si immerger nell inev [...]

    12. An easy reading, which I devoured on my phone It brings me back memories from when I d read Franny and Zooey or The Catcher in the Rye I like J.D Salinger a lot actually and I wish he wrote books.

    13. Niente, non ce la faccio proprio ad entrare in sintonia con questo gigante della letteratura Non riesco ad empatizzare, almeno non ancora, non avendo letto abbastanza, con Seymour Glass, il piu importante personaggio uscito dalla penna di Salinger, forse ancor piu importante di Holden Caulfield, a quanto si legge in giro, altro personaggio con cui non ho avuto un gran rapporto In questo libro epistolare, una lunga lettera scritta alla famiglia dal bambino prodigio Seymour, non capisco dove si vo [...]

    14. In the intellectual spirit of striving to find a common thread between this novella, the last of Salinger s published stories, and his previous works, namely, The Catcher in the Rye, it could be asserted that Holden Caulfield and Seymour Glass in addition to, perhaps, the entire Glass clan are working their way through a similar sphere of personal issues And no, they are not necessarily and exclusively linked to adolescence, or childhood, in the case of the precocious Glass siblings These storie [...]

    15. Subsequent readings will surely increase my appreciation of this story It s somewhat like a McSweeny s experience when taken from the original New Yorker of June 19, 1965 The advertisements alone are worth the trip Some that stood out for me were Nothing Improves the Taste of Water like Teacher s Scotch and The first thing that people think about when you mention Scandinavia is beautiful blonde women So here s a picture of one I think this copy adds to my appreciation of young Seymour, especiall [...]

    16. A mysterious post modern novella that succeeds mainly in providing curious readers with further context concerning the Glass Family, who are portrayed in many notable stories by J.D Salinger, including Franny , Zooey and A Perfect Day for Bananafish.Here we have the preposterously precocious rambling letter of Seymour Glass eldest child of the family present briefly by his brother Buddy Glass This letter serves as an objective proof that Seymour was a child genius the likes of which the world ha [...]

    17. Seymour e Buddy, i due figli maggiori della famiglia Glass, sono in un campeggio Seymour approfitta di un infortunio che lo costringe a letto per scrivere una lunga, interminabile lettera ai genitori e ai fratelli rimasti a casa Dalle prime pagine pensavo si trattasse di un giovane ventenne con un carattere incredibilmente deciso e che aveva gi capito come girava il mondo Sono rimasta sconvolta quando ho scoperto che il mittente della lettera aveva appena otto anni Ok, per quanto geniale possa e [...]

    18. Oh Seymour Glass, you were such a precocious child This is essentially a 51 page, hand written letter that 7 year old Seymour Glass who plays a part in the majority of Salinger s books and short stories no matter how big or small wrote to his family while he and his little brother were away at camp It s really tough to keep in mind that this was all supposed to have been written by a 7 year ol Genius or not this kid uses SAT words than an SAT specific dictionary He goes off on all these fabulou [...]

    19. pheweven after signing off, the young Seymour Glass couldn t resist adding a post script to his ridiculously long and precocious letter Was hoping that Buddy would have concluded his transcription of Seymour s letter with a detailed reference to the party, or precisely, to why he felt it to be a small but significant point in interpreting the letter Despite Buddy s assurance that he transcribed Seymour s letter exactly word for word, coma for coma, Seymour s prophecy of Buddy s future success [...]

    20. Hapworth was Salinger s last public work, chiefly due to the terrible reception it received from literary critics who had formerly praised him It is undoubtedly the worst thing he ever succeeded in publishing Rampant use of the word humorous and a lack of any kind of verisimilitude whatsoever eclipse the presence of his typical quirky charm It is proof that even geniuses need an editor, and that even geniuses can churn out something sub par when they become too invested in their own opinions of [...]

    21. Available only on the New Yorker archive site Between chores laundry and breadmaking white I read this epically long story The word precocious was invented for the Glass family, particularly Seymour, who writes this letter turned story Some great observations, though a tad unbelievable that a seven year old would write in such a way especially the listing of the desired books he wants sent up to camp But hey, Salinger got me to read it and like it T here is always a slight, magnificent, utterly [...]
