  • Moment Later The Phone Next To Jd
    809 words
    Serv in It Up! It was another grueling day in the restaurant industry. JD grimaced and pulled his hat down a little lower to shield his eyes from the sun that blazed through the big windows of the dining room. He was shorthanded today and in the midst of a particularly brutal lunch rush. Groaning inwardly he tried to put on a happy face for the trio now approaching the register. As he began to greet the two women and their male acquaintance, one of the ladies broke in sharply, Yeah. I want the n...
  • My Best Friends
    331 words
    Although The Catcher in the Rye caused considerable controversy when it was first published in 1951, the book-the account of three disoriented days in the life of a troubled sixteen-year-old boy-was an instant hit. Within two weeks after its release, it was listed number one on The New York Times best-seller list, and it stayed there for thirty weeks. It remained immensely popular for many years, especially among teenagers and young adults, largely because of its fresh, brash style and anti-esta...
  • Only Children Salinger
    1,663 words
    Salinger's children, as they appear in various novels and short stories, portray the ills of modern society through their innocence and spirituality, their honesty and sometimes, erratic behaviour. They are often as fragile and odd as they are intelligent and endearing, and the obscenities of life tend to overwhelm them at times.

  • Live With Salinger
    1,682 words
    J.D. Salinger could be considered one of the greatest, and most authors of our time. We only know limited things about him and his work. He has been pushed off into the woods due to betrayal by his loved ones, and people close to him. Negative criticism of his work has also contributed to making him leave. Not to mention the biggest factor which made him want to be left alone, phoniness. These are the reasons that I believe why he wants to be left alone and not give interviews, this is also what...
  • Language Salinger
    1,268 words
    Looking back, one can now discern at least four phases in Salinger's career. His early stories generally portray characters that feel estranged and marooned because of World War II. The Catcher in the Rye and Salinger's attempt in that book to deal with estrangement and isolation through a Zen-inspired awakening and lonely benevolence represent his second phase. The third phase, seen in Nine Stories involves bringing together the principles of Zen art and the tradition of the short story. The fo...
