    • J.D. Salinger

      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.

    • i know of three people who are totally obsessed with j.d. salinger:john hinckleymark david chapman david i know of four reasons why i (must) love this book:1) because i don't want to see a list that looks like this:ronald reaganjohn lennon brian2) because in the early 80s salinger was a huge fan of the sitcom mr. merlin which was based on the premise -- wait for it… wait for it -- that merlin (yeah, that merlin) is alive and well in san francisco and working as a mechanic. and it gets better: [...]

    • This is as good of a short story collection that one could hope to find. Salinger was a heck of a writer, certainly well known for his classic, The Catcher in the Rye, but there is much more out there, like this little jewel for example. I give this 5 stars on the strength of two stories alone, but they all were good. The two stories I mention are A Perfect Day for Bananafish, and For Esme - With Love And Squalor. Both have themes involving troubled soldiers returning from World War II. Salinger [...]

    • If I can get serious for a moment, and cast aside the brittle, smartassed, persona that the social networking aspect of tends to bring out, I'd like to try to express what it is that drives me in this life. It is the following belief, instilled primarily by my mother, an exceptionally smart woman who never suffered fools gladly, but had the mitigating grace to be one of the warmest, most generous women you could ever hope to meet, as well as having one of the greatest voices you can imagine(But [...]

    • قبلا ناتور دشت رو خونده بودم و حالم از شخصیت هولدن بهم خورده بود و با خودم عهد کرده بودم دیگه دنبال کتاب هایی از این نویسنده نرم که اصولا جو گیرها توی وبلاگ هاشون با آب و تاب میگن عالیه ! هرچند دوباره تحت تاثیر جو این کتاب رو شروع کردم و اوایلش به خودم میگفتم که باز وقتت با یه کتا [...]

    • If kidnappers had snatched up J D Salinger some time in the early 1970s, driven like madmen through the night and the next day too and imprisoned him in a small but pleasant room somewhere near Boise, furnished him with with all mod cons, and told him he wasn't going anyplace soon until he'd finished at the very least another nine stories, and at best three or four complete novels; and if the kidnappers - due to an endearing cocktail of naivete and compassion (because you know they were just lit [...]

    • Salinger's "Nine Stories" should be renamed "How to Write Short Stories." While many hold up "Catcher in the Rye" as the zenith of his achievements for me it will always be this wistful and brave little book. I re-read it two or three times or year. I love it that much. To be honest out of the nine stories collected here I would say that only a third are Salinger's best. "Perfect Day for Banafish," "For Esme - With Love and Squalor," and "The Laughing Man" are to me the peaks of short fiction. E [...]

    • “Each of his phrases was rather like a little ancient island, inundated by a miniature sea of whiskey.”Oh J.D why couldn’t you have published more of these amazing stories in your life time???Nine Stories -- a collection of brilliant short stories from J.D. Salinger. It is in this collection where the Glass family, the main constituents of Franny and Zooey, is first introduced. In the next eight stories, we meet and get to know characters with an assortment of mental and physical ailments, [...]

    • Published in 1948, 3 years before The Catcher in the Rye, A Perfect Day for Bananafish is the scariest and bleakest short story I know. World War 2 did to Salinger what World War 1 did to Celine and suicidal Seymour's ghost haunts all of Salinger's subsequent works, what we have read and certainly what remains to be read. Everything he read is interconnected, a hall of mirrors (magic mirrors), a labyrinth, and Seymour is both Asterion and the guest-star from Athens

    • I was sitting at my cube farm today, moving numbers from one spreadsheet to another, cursing the internet tracking that keeps me from daytime Goodreading and daydreaming of pixies and unicorns when I received an email from my wife that utterly rocked my world. ":( Salinger's dead," read the short missive, and with that my world grew a little more gray. Normally news of celebrity death does little but placate my immense Schadenfreude, but Salinger's death is a serious blow to me and I feel compel [...]

    • I worked through this book slowly. One story every few days because thats all i could handle. I found this a really boring read. Didnt enjoy any of the short stories and didnt enjoy getting to know the characters in any. Seemed to have a theme of varied wealthy people in solitude in someway or another. Not for me :(

    • It has been a long time since I read Nine Stories. For once I don't care about getting older. This wasn't about that. So I started rereading Nine Stories in my car on my work lunch breaks. Getting through the day necessities stuff. I really needed an old friend. I was at a loss in a bad depths of despair kinda way that I cannot put in a meaningful way that will mean shit to anyone else. I remembered Nine Stories was good to me. I'm in no mood for anything more than that. Friends.This probably wo [...]

    • Αν θελήσεις ποτέ να γράψεις διηγήματα, να ξέρεις οτι δε θα το κάνεις ποτέ τοσο καλά οσο ο Σάλιντζερ.

    • A slightly mixed bag of stories with some gems among them, notably A Perfect Day for Bananafish and, especially, Teddy. All the stories, even when I didn’t love them, had small moments of either brilliance or craziness. And Salinger was a master of the quirky, zany dialogue full of 50s slang, non sequiturs and sarcastic repartees. There were laugh-out-loud moments, there were bizarre moments where I had no idea what he was on about, there was hyperbole galore, and there was much of the 1940s s [...]

    • This is one of "those" books. The ones where I turn the final page and sigh and wonder how I can convince other people that it's worth reading. Consider this: There are 30,520 ratings for this book here on Good Reads. The average of all those ratings is 4.18. Nothing I could say would be more convincing than that. Read it and marvel. My two favorite stories are For Esme--With Love and Squalor, and Down at the Dinghy. I think I liked these best because I love the way Salinger writes about childre [...]

    • Quando ho iniziato questo libro, attratta dalle numerose recensioni entusiastiche, le mie aspettative erano piuttosto elevate, ma mai mi sarei aspettata una simile incantevole suggestiva prodigiosa opera d'arte. I nove racconti sono, nessuno escluso, tra i più belli e stilisticamente perfetti che abbia mai letto, e ciò anche per merito della eccellente traduzione di Carlo Fruttero, che ne sottolinea la ricchezza linguistica esaltandone la pregevole fattura. Si intuisce, a monte di questa prosa [...]

    • Not being too fond of Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye – and having, in fact, a vivid recollection of me chucking it after about a 100 pages into a far-flung, dusty corner out of sheer tedium in high school (reading assignments are hemlock for stubborn minds) - I wasn’t particularly looking forward to his short story collection. Would it just be an assortment of variations on Holden Caulfield? I feared the worst. Boy was I happy to be proven wrong. Talk about rising to low expectations, huh? [...]

    • شخصیت پردازی و فضا سازی واقعا محشر بودبا اینکه داستان کوتاه بود راحت میشد شخصیت ها و کاراکترها رو مجسم کرد.که بیشترشون هم انسان های خاص و درونگرا با عقاید عجیب و گاها عمیق بودن.از داستان تدی،دلتنگی های نقاش خیابان48 و مرد خندان و تقدیم به ازمه با عشق و نفرت بیشتر خوشم اومد.

    • Most of these stories make a statement (or two, or more) about how our past, and our interactions with each other, affect our lives. I had this feel that in some way, the stories represented our disconnections from one another, from reality, and from full knowledge; the slippery grasp we have of our perceptions, and our tendency to judge too quickly. Salinger often gets this across through arresting dialogue among individuals, typically with at least one of the individuals in some way being "dif [...]

    • La vita è un caval donatoNon starò a ripetere il solito mea culpa sulla narrativa breve, trascurata e subordinata ai romanzi, ritenuti a lungo non solo la migliore ma l’esclusiva forma letteraria degna di nota.Poi mi sono imbattuto in Wallace e Carver, Saunders e la Munro ed altri ancora e le eccezioni sono diventate regola, ma ciò non mi ha impedito di stupirmi di fronte a questa ennesima dimostrazione, firmata J.D.Salinger, della sottile malìa del racconto e delle sue pressoché infinite [...]

    • Reading this short story collection helps me to understand why Salinger was hounded to the ends of the earth in an effort to make him write again. His characters are so poignant and so real; his children so precocious and on the brink of something wholly indefinable. I bought the book with a desire to revisit For Esme - With Love And Squalor and found it as captivating and moving as I had remembered, but the unexpected treasures of The Laughing Man and Teddy left me breathless. Salinger knows co [...]

    • Nunca había leído nada de J.D. Salinger, es por ello que decidí comprarme este libro de cuentos, que es uno de sus tres títulos principales, junto con el aclamado “El Guardián entre el Centeno” y “Franny and Zooey”. Respecto del primer libro debo decir que luego de leer brevemente de qué se trataba la historia desistí de leerlo al instante, puesto que no me atrae en absoluto leer la vida de un adolescente inconformista (aunque este comentario moleste a algunos lectores y me traiga [...]

    • Spotless short stories. Perfectly constructed, not even a single extra word. And they fit perfectly together.

    • «Poi accadde una cosa assolutamente orrenda. Mi trovai come trascinato a pensare che qualunque cosa facessi per diventare un uomo capace di amministrare la sua vita con distacco, con buon senso o con eleganza, sarei sempre stato tutt’al più un visitatore in un giardino di orinali e pappagalli smaltati, con una cieca divinità di legno ritta in un angolo, vestita d’un cinto armato».Sono felice, persino orgogliosa di aver salutato il 2015 e inaugurato il 2016 in compagnia di un tipetto come [...]

    • To me, short stories always feel like sampling the chef’s taster menu – afterward I never feel fully sated and just wish I could have had more of the courses I liked the most. It’s set of appetisers without the satisfaction of a full meal. That said there was a lot here to admire and enjoy.Even a minimal amount of research on Salinger throws up the fact that as a GI in World War 2 he was traumatised by the Battle of the Bulge and Nazi concentration camps. So, it’s not surprising to see t [...]

    • Like many people, my first exposure to Salinger was Catcher in the Rye discussed in a high school class with unenthusiastic students. I remember the book polarizing the class, and I was firmly on the side of our boy Holden Caulfield being an overall turd and obnoxious narrator. Looking back on that experience, I felt like I had missed out on enjoying some part of important literature. When I came across Nine Stories in a Michael Chabon novel, I decided to dip my toes back into Salinger's limited [...]

    • Mi è bastato leggere il primo racconto, “Un giorno perfetto per i pescibanana”, per abbattere ogni barriera. La barriera della razionalità, gli argini costruiti dall'esperienza, le consuetudini del cercare determinate cose e fare attenzione ad altre, durante una lettura.Potrei quindi dire tantissime cose su questi racconti: potrei parlare della maestria di Salinger nel tratteggiare storie brevi, che nascono da frammenti di frasi e gesti precisi, si costruiscono quasi da sole e improvvisame [...]

    • I took 4 days to read this thin book, not because I didn't get enough time, but because all the nine stories had such an engrossing impact on me. Every time I finished reading a story, I'd HAVE to set the book aside and think about what just happened there. Every time it was like a big blow inside my head that'd block all other thoughts for some time, all but one.I usually don't prefer short stories because I enjoy my reading mostly when I get a feeling that I know each and every character in an [...]
