KIRKUS REVIEW

Salinger has been heralded as ""the laureate of the young"". Here is depth mining in the Salinger lode in a collection of articles -- hostile and friendly- about the man and his work. The editor in an introduction analyzes the variety of meanings that critics find, proof of the way he compels imagination and poses question as to whether he may not be ideologized or footnoted to death. A full round of approaches, a handbook for the cult, for literature studies and classes and for the more sophisticated upper teens.
