There are only a hand full of books I reread more than once and this is the one I probably have read the most.
As undoubtedly one of the, if not the, greatest American writer Salinger weaves stories of loss, yearning, and pathos with complexity and a dry, wry wit that you will be familiar with if you know his other work. All the stories are phenomenal but “A Perfect Day for Bananafish“, “Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut“, “The Laughing Man“, and “For Esme with Love and Squalor” are my most favorites.
This is a difficult book to write about because nothing I say can quite do it justice, just this: If you have not read this book, do so, your life will be better for it.
But what do you think?
