Ramblings: Brilliance

J.D. Salinger

...I have now read all his works--Catcher in the Rye, Nine Stories, Franny and Zooey, and Rise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction. Where Catcher in the Rye will always hold the title of favorite, the intricate stories he weaves in the rest are amazing. You cannot help but long to know more about the Glass Family, who are the subjects of Franny and Zooey, Rise High, Seymour and at least 3 of the stories in Nine Stories. your curiosity is provoked to know if Buddy Glass is in fact the writer, or voice, of Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye. just can always read them over and over and feel like there is so much more that you missed.
