Vixen said:I found the book both addicting and disturbing, and I wonder, who was the author? Did he write anything else?
starrwriter said:I agree with your assessment of those two books. As he grew older, Salinger seemed to write more and more about less and less. He supposedly has manuscripts from the past 40 years locked in a safe, but I'm afraid they might be about subjects like how many angels can fit on the head of a pin. After he dies, his literary reputation will rest on 3 books: Catcher, Nine Stories and Franny & Zoey -- a small output of very original writing.
