Synopsis:

Two children of the Glass family appear in separate stories set in twentieth-century New York.


Review:

"The worst of American sophistication today is that it is so bored, so full of categorical aversion to things that writers should never take for granted and never close their eyes to. The fact that Salinger's work is particularly directed against the 'well fed sun-burned' people at the summer theater, at the 'section men' in colleges...at the 'three-martini' men--this, indeed, is what is wrong. He hates them. They are no longer people, but symbols...The problem is not one of spiritual pride or of guilt; it is that in the tearing of the 'sympathetic bond' it is not love that goes, but the deepest possiblilites of literary art."

Alfred Kazin, Atlantic Monthly, August 1961

Review:

"This seems to be the nub of the trouble: Salinger loves the Glasses more than God loves them....He loves them to the detriment of artistic moderation. 'Zooey' is just too long; there are too many cigarettes, too many goddams, too much verbal ado about not quite enough....The Glass saga...potentially contains great fiction. When all reservations have been entered...about the direction he has taken, it remains to acknowledge that it is a direction, and that the refusal to rest content, the willingness to risk excess on behalf of one's obsessions, is what distinguishes artists from entertainers, and what makes some artists adventurers on behalf of us all."

John Updike, New York Times Book Review, 09/17/1961

Book Description: BACK BAY BOOKS, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 204 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. 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.
