Beschreibung

Witty, wise and bittersweet, The Catcher in the Rye is the ultimate American coming-of-age novel - a timeless classic

It's Christmas and Holden Caulfield has just been expelled from yet another school. Fleeing the crooks at Pencey Prep, he pinballs around New York City seeking solace in fleeting encounters - shooting the bull with strangers in dive hotels, wandering alone round Central Park, getting beaten up by pimps and cut down by erstwhile girlfriends.

The city is beautiful and terrible, in all its neon loneliness and seedy glamour, its mingled sense of possibility and emptiness. Holden passes through it like a ghost, thinking always of his kid sister Phoebe, the only person who really understands him, and his determination to escape the phonies and find a life of true meaning.

The Catcher in the Rye is an all-time classic coming-of-age story: an elegy to teenage alienation, capturing the deeply human need for connection and the bewildering sense of loss as we leave childhood behind.

'He wrote a perfect novel and it changed US culture forever' Independent

'It was a very pure voice he had. There was no one like him' Martin Amis

'He was the poet of youthful alienation before youth really knew what that was' Sunday Times

'His work meant a lot to me when I was a young person and his writing still sings now' Dave Eggers

J. D. Salinger was born in 1919 and died in January 2010. He grew up in New York City and wrote short stories from an early age, but his breakthrough came in 1948 with the publication in the New Yorker of 'A Perfect Day for Bananafish'. The Catcher in the Rye was his first and only novel, published in 1951. It remains one of the most translated, taught and reprinted texts, and has sold over 65 million copies worldwide. He went on to write three further, critically acclaimed, best-selling works of fiction: Franny and Zooey, For Esmé - With Love And Squalor and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters, and Seymour - An Introduction. Salinger continued to write throughout his life and left behind a large body of unpublished work.

While also highly recommendable for adults, too, every young person should especially read this. It is a special book and it felt great to read it.

Absolut großartig

Der Catcher ist sicherlich kein Geheimtipp sondern zählt zur ganz großen Weltliteratur. Und dies absolut zurecht. Drei Tage mit dem sympathischen "Antihelden" Holden Caulfield in New York City zwischen Gesellschaftskritik, dem Versuch des Erwachsenwerdens und höchst amüsanter authentischer Sprache ergeben eines der unterhaltsamsten Bücher (für mich das unterhaltsamste) überhaupt. Unbedingt lesen
