Beschreibung

In honour of the centennial of the birth of J.D. Salinger in 1919, Penguin reissues all four of his books in beautiful commemorative hardback editions - with artwork and text based on the very first Salinger editions published in the 1950s and 1960s.

The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield...

One of the greatest American novels of all time, The Catcher in the Rye is a 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.

'A perfect novel ... 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

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

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 an
d 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 Salinger continued to write throughout his life and left behind a large body of unpublished work.

Always a great classic

It was a great book for me when I was a teenager and I do hope it is still for many. A young iconic character Holden’s world view... Complex issues of identity, loss of innocence, maybe a depression. (Despite all these dramatic issues I have found only hope)... One of the best English language novels.

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
