My Ex Who Can't Grown Up: Holden Caulfield

“If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. 574 more words

Analysis of J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye

J. D. Salinger’s (January 1, 1919 – January 27, 2010) characters are always extremely sensitive young people who are trapped between two dimensions of the world: love and “squalor.” The central problem in most of his fiction is not finding a bridge between these two worlds but bringing some sort of indiscriminate love into the world of squalor: to find a haven where love can triumph and flourish. 2,083 more words

Woo! This should be fun!

Have you ever damaged a book?

Haha, yes! I remember when I was reading Cinder by Marissa Meyer I was so into it that I took it out to eat with my family at a Mexican restaurant. 484 more words
