Sobre l'autor

J. D. Salinger was born in New York City on January 1, 1919. He attended Manhattan public schools, Valley Forge Military Academy in Pennsylvania, and three colleges, but received no degrees. He was from an upper class Jewish family and they lived on the upper west side of Manhattan on Park Avenue. mostra'n més Salinger joined the U. S. Army in 1942 and fought in the D-Day invasion at Normandy as well as the Battle of the Bulge, but suffered a nervous breakdown due to all he had seen and experienced in the war and checked himself into an Army hospital in Germany in 1945. In December 1945, his short story I'm Crazy was published in Collier's. In 1947, his short story A Perfect Day for Bananafish was published in The New Yorker. Throughout his lifetime, he wrote more than 30 short stories and a handful of novellas, which were published in magazines and later collected in works such as Nine Stories, Franny and Zooey, and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction. The Catcher in the Rye, published in 1951, was his only novel. His last published story, Hapworth 16, 1924, appeared in 1965. He spent the remainder of his years in seclusion and silence in a home in Cornish, New Hampshire. He died of natural causes on January 27, 2010 at the age of 91. Salinger always wanted to write the great American novel; when he succeeded in this with Catcher in the Rye, he was unprepared for the onslaught on privacy issues that this popularity brought on. He never wanted to be in the spotlight and retreated from all contacts he had in New York City. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Ressenyes

El protagonista Holden Caulfield és un adolescent que acaba de ser expulsat de l'institut de Pencey en finalitzaar el primer trimestre. Fill d'una família benestant de Nova York, decideix marxar de l'escola durant el cap de setmana a tres dies de les vacances de Nadal. Comença a vagar per diferents bars, nigth clubs i hotels de mala mort per esperar el dimecres que és el dia que ha d'arribar a casa.En aquest temps d'arrossegar-se d'aquí cap allà ens transmet tota la seva angoixa i depressió, tot el seu rebuig del fastigós món que l'envolta, la hipocresia de tots els seus coneguts i amics. Les noies que li agraden més o menys i les seves frustrades relacions amb el sexe femení. Crític amb tot, només se'n salva el seu germà Allie,que va morir de leucèmia, i la seva germana petita, Phoebe, a la que adora.
L'autor transmet al lector l'estat depressiu del personatge, amb mentides contínues, em feia pensar en un Pinocchio modern, el llenguatge utilitzat fent servir paraulotes va escandalitzar en el moment de la seva publicació, així com el tractament de l'adolescent desencantat i crític amb la societat americana del su temps.
