Nine Stories may be his greatest work, but this is my favorite
of Salinger’s books. The religious themes can be a little heavy-handed,
but these two short stories about Franny and Zooey Glass, two young
adults trying to recover from being precocious children, are about as
well-written as fiction can be.

— Jason

Description


The author writes: FRANNY came out in The New Yorker in 1955, and was swiftly followed, in 1957 by ZOOEY. Both stories are early, critical entries in a narrative series I'm doing about a family of settlers in twentieth-century New York, the Glasses. It is a long-term project, patently an ambiguous one, and there is a real-enough danger, I suppose that sooner or later I'll bog down, perhaps disappear entirely, in my own methods, locutions, and mannerisms. On the whole, though, I'm very hopeful. I love working on these Glass stories, I've been waiting for them most of my life, and I think I have fairly decent, monomaniacal plans to finish them with due care and all-available skill.
