Although the author of this book places meaning on mostly every word or phrase Salinger wrote, it offers excellent analysis and references as support to do it. I am no literary critique and so Salinger expert, however, I got so much insight from this book the only problem was picking what to use to support my thesis. I would recommend this book very much for those who interested in viewing the underbelly of Salinger's Nine Stories. It's fascinating!

The author clearly has studied the "Nine Stories" a great deal as he has studied the writer, J D Salinger. Unfortunately, he reads so much into each story, particularly from his own perspective and through his own prejudices and needs that Salinger's words and lovely stories get lost. To Dr McDuffie, as Freud said" Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar".
