About the Author
J D Salinger was born in 1919. 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. It was followed by three other books of short stories and novellas, the most recent of which was published in 1963. He lives in Cornish, New Hampshire. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I think you will need to like the Glass Family to read either of these stories, like, really like them, even though a lot of them are problematic and unlikeable. I liked Seymour in particular, and I adore Buddy's love for Seymour as a brother, so these two stories really reached out to me and gave me the closure I needed since Seymour's death in Bananafish.
Of the two, the better written story is no doubt Raise High, but the more personal one, the one I connected with, was Seymour: An Introduction.
Seeing that I sent my extra copy off to a friend, you can bet I would recommend this to people!
