Franny and zooey book review
Is JD Salinger's Franny and Zooey posturing or profound? | Books | The GuardianAnyone who doubts the transformative power of literature should have a look at the comments Franny and Zooey has inspired here on the Reading group. This book has changed lives. The narrative inspired me to make the choices I subsequently took. This novel and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters are seminal works, novels for our troubled times. And the quotation from Sappho still makes the hair rise on the back of my neck.

Is JD Salinger's Franny and Zooey posturing or profound?
I guess Salinger intended this book to be like a Platonic anf, full of profound wisdom. I consumed these books in the late sixties, and probably read Franny after Catcher in my junior or senior year in high school. It seems that the book has triggered her torment.
It pays the price, however, what can Zooey do when he's not talking. La risposta che cercavi da settimane… ti basta allungare la mano per prenderla. There is no resolution; nothing definitive really happens. Hmm.
A book for the beach: Franny and Zooey by JD Salinger in that New York Times review, the juxtaposition of the two novellas is uncomfortable.

See a Problem?
It is difficult to think of anyone within the arts who is so closely associated with just one work and yet still heralded as a genius. Catcher in the Rye simply is J. Salinger and vice versa. This is partly because the book is not only a pop culture behemoth but also a rite of passage. Salinger is inseparable from Catcher in the Rye for another reason however, that being that it is pretty much his only novel. Franny is the first story and it describes the beginnings of a spiritual and emotional breakdown suffered by the beautiful but neurotic teenager Franny Glass.
