Review

Volume containing two interrelated stories by J.D. Salinger, published in book form in 1961. The stories, originally published in The New Yorker magazine, concern Franny and Zooey Glass, two members of the family that was the subject of most of Salinger's short fiction. Franny is an intellectually precocious late adolescent who tries to attain spiritual purification by obsessively reiterating the "Jesus prayer" as an antidote to the perceived superficiality and corruptness of life. She subsequently suffers a nervous breakdown. In the second story, her next older brother, Zooey, attempts to heal Franny by pointing out that her constant repetition of the "Jesus prayer" is as self-involved and egotistical as the egotism against which she rails. --

About the Author

J.D. Salinger was born in New York in 1919. His first story was published in 1940 and he wrote a further twenty short stories before he 'found his subject' with the short novel The Catcher in the Rye (1951). The book has enormous popular success, particularly with students. It was followed by a collection of short stories, For Esme, With Love and Squalor, which encapsulated many of the themes later to be found in Salinger's linked series of works about the Glass Family.
