Franny and Zooey by J D Salinger
About the Book
A funny, poignant snapshot of young adulthood from the much-loved author of The Catcher in the Rye
Franny Glass and Lane Coutell are the perfect campus couple- beautiful, intelligent, their whole lives ahead of them. But on the weekend of the big game, when Franny comes to visit, something goes wrong and tensions begin to surface.
Franny’s older brother is Zooey. They come from a sophisticated and highly eccentric family- all seven Glass siblings are former child stars, each in their own way charismatic and yet damaged. And when Franny’s anxiety spirals into a more serious breakdown, Zooey is the only one who might be able to reach her.
A novel in two intertwining stories, Franny and Zooey brilliantly captures the emotional strains and ruptures of entering adulthood. Enduringly resonant, incisive and expansive in both sense of that word, it is unmistakeably the work of a master.
