The catcher in the rye by J. D Salinger( Book )

999 editions published between 1945 and 2020 in 33 languages and held by 15,829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Story of Holden Caufield with his idiosyncrasies, penetrating insight, confusion, sensitivity and negativism. The hero-narrator of "The Catcher in the Rye" is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days. The boy himself is at once too simple and too complex for us to make any final comment about him or his story. Perhaps the safest thing we can say about Holden is that he was born in the world not just strongly attracted to beauty but, almost, hopelessly impaled on it. There are many voices in this novel: children's voices, adult voices, underground voices -- but Holden's voice is the most eloquent of all. Transcending his own vernacular, yet remaining marvelously faithful to it, he issues a perfectly articulated cry of mixed pain and pleasure. However, like most lovers and clowns and poets of the higher orders, he keeps most of the pain to, and for, himself. The pleasure he gives away, or sets aside, with all his heart. It is there for the reader who can handle it to keep
Franny and Zooey by J. D Salinger( Book )

285 editions published between 1955 and 2019 in 15 languages and held by 6,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Franny came out in The New Yorker in 1955, and was swiftly followed in 1957 by Zooey. Both stories are early entries in a narrative series about the Glasses, a family of settlers in twentieth-century New York. In the first story, Franny, a young college girl, arrives in New Haven (Yale) to be with her boyfriend for a football weekend, where they go to a café. The story is essentially an account of their talk. Franny is telling her boyfriend about how phony she finds campus life, and talks about a book she read about a Russian monk who discovers a special Jesus prayer that can become a part of you. In the second story, Franny is at her parents' home in New York, recovering from a nervous breakdown. In a long talk with her brother Zooey, they confront each other's traumas, weaknesses, genius and problems with the world

For Esmé - with love and squalor : and other stories by J. D Salinger( Book )

121 editions published between 1953 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of stories of loss and unsuppressed rage - in which the children are fragile, odd, and hyper-smart and the adults beaten down by circumstances. In "A Perfect Day for Bananafish," Seymour Glass floats his beach mate Sybil on a raft and tells her that these creatures have a tragic flaw; if one swims into a hole filled with bananas, it will overeat until it's too fat to escape. Meanwhile, Seymour's wife, Muriel, is back at their Florida hotel, assuring her mother not to worry - Seymour hasn't lost control. In "The Laughing Man," the narrator remembers how, at nine, he and his fellow Comanches would be picked up each afternoon by the Chief - a Staten Island law student paid to keep them busy. At the end of each day, the Chief tells the saga of a hideously deformed, gentle, criminal who regularly crosses the Paris-China border in order to avoid capture by the internationally famous detective Marcel Dufarge. The masked hero's luck comes to an end on the same day that things go awry between the Chief and his girlfriend

Neun Erzählungen by J. D Salinger( Book )

82 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Este es no sólo un gran libro de relatos del autor de El guardián entre el centeno, sino uno de los mejores libros de cuentos del siglo XX. Son piezas perfectas, llenas de frescura, de un narrador experto. Cuentos como "Un día perfecto para el pez plátano" o "Para Esmé, con amor y sordidez", con sus niños-adultos inolvidables, conservan intactos su poder de conmoción. Estos imperdibles relatos constituyen tal vez el mayor aporte de Salinger a la literatura del siglo XX y son una inmejorable forma de acceder al mundo narrativo del autor. Pocos autores han ejercido una influencia tan profunda en sus contemporáneos. Convertido en un ermitaño tras su temprano éxito literario, Salinger es uno de los autores más venerados y a la vez más misteriosos y solitarios de este siglo, circunstancias avaladas por una breve pero portentosa obra literaria y su eterna reclusión en un remoto pueblo de New Hampshire." --Descripción del editor

Il giovane Holden by J. D Salinger( Book )

Sono passati cinquant'anni da quando è stato scritto - quaranta dall'uscita in Italia - ma quell'ansia, cosí magistralmente colta da Salinger dialogando con i piú giovani, ci è ancora vicinissima. Continuiamo a vederlo, Holden Caulfield, con la sua aria scocciata, insofferente alle ipocrisie e al conformismo, lui e la sua <<infanzia schifa>> e le <<cose da matti che gli sono capitate verso Natale>>, dal giorno in cui lasciò l'Istituto Pencey con una bocciatura in tasca e nessuna voglia di farlo sapere ai suoi. La trama è tutta qui, narrata da quella voce spiccia e senza fronzoli. Ma sono i suoi pensieri, il suo umore rabbioso ad andare in scena. Perché è arrabbiato Holden? Siccome non lo sappiamo con precisione, ciascuno vi ha letto la propria rabbia, ha assunto il protagonista a <<exemplum vitae>>, e ciò ne ha decretato l'immenso successo che dura tuttora. È fuor di dubbio, infatti, che Salinger abbia sconvolto il corso della letteratura contemporanea influenzando l'immaginario collettivo e stilistico del Novecento, diventando un autore imprescindibile per la comprensione del nostro tempo. Holden come lo conosciamo noi non potrebbe scrollarsi di dosso i suoi <<e tutto quanto>>, <<e compagnia bella>>, <<e quel che segue>> per tradurre sempre e soltanto l'espressione <<and all>>. Né chi lo ha letto potrebbe pensarlo denudato del suo slang fatto di <<una cosa da lasciarti secco>> o <<la vecchia Phoebe>>. A distanza di quarant'anni dall'edizione italiana, Einaudi ripropone Il giovane Holden, a celebrare uno dei grandi libri del Novecento che tanto ha ancora da dire negli anni Duemila

Dressez haut la poutre maîtresse, charpentiers ; suivi de : Seymour, une introduction ... by J. D Salinger( Book )

25 editions published between 1964 and 2016 in French and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les deux longs récits qui forment la matière de ce livre ont paru en première publication dans le New Yorker : Dressez haut la poutre maîtresse, charpentiers, en 1955, et Seymour, une introduction, en 1959. Quels que soient leurs différences d'esprit ou leur effet sur le lecteur, ils ont tous deux pour centre Seymour Glass, qui est le héros de ma fresque encore inachevée sur la famille Glass. J'ai pensé qu'il valait mieux les grouper, pour ne pas dire les accoler volontairement, à la hâte, si du moins je tenais à leur éviter un contact bien trop proche ou anormal avec la suite de la fresque. ... Chose étrange, les joies et les satisfactions que m'apporte mon travail sur la famille Glass augmentent et s'approfondissent singulièrement avec les années. Cependant, je ne saurais proposer à cela d'explication raisonnée. Aucune, en tout cas, hors du cercle enchanté de ma propre fiction." J.D. Salinger. []
