About the Author
J.D. Salinger was born in 1919 and died in January 2010. He grew up in New York City, and wrote short stories from an early age, but his breakthrough came in 1948 with the publication in the New Yorker of 'A Perfect Day for Bananafish'. The Catcher in the Rye was his first and only novel, published in 1951. It remains one of the most translated, taught and reprinted texts, and has sold some 65 million copies. Salinger also wrote several novellas and short stories, including Franny and Zooey, For Esme - With Love and Squalor, and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction.

It seems most people who’ve read this book dislike Holden. Some actually feel serious contempt and loathing toward him. Those people are as equally suprised and confused by our feelings, as we are by theirs.
So...what does that say about me and my daughter? Probably best we don’t think about it too much.
"The Catcher in The Rye" is an excellent book. Salinger's writing is superb and flawless. The story line and the characters are very well developed. You will come to love Holden Caulfield, the main character. "The Catcher in he Rye" is an ideal read for high school students, but great for adults as well. I highly recommend this book to you for your reading pleasure.
