J.D. Salinger:The Catcher in the Rye
English, pdf, mobi, epub

Since his debut in 1951
as The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with
“cynical adolescent.” Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in
his sixteen-year-old life, just after he’s been expelled from prep
school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on
banned book lists. It begins,
“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. In the
first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents
would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty
personal about them.”
