Parnassus Classics Club - Franny and Zooey

Please join moderator Kathy Schultenover for a discussion of J.D. Salinger's book, Franny and Zooey.  Parnassus Book Club meetings are free and open to anyone.  Buy the book, read the book and join the discussion.

The author writes about his book: "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."
