FRANNY AND ZOOEY by J. D. Salinger


Email this review


In this cerebral exercise of precision in communication, is implementation to the Salinger saga. For this mirror held up to Franny and to her brother Zooey reflects also their mother and their other brothers and the two sections interlink as first Franny and then Zooey come into focus. Franny, unable to make her football date understand her new conversion, retreats to her home when Zooey moves in to dissect her submission to her new concepts. In a series of near monologues which fully cover the family background and education of these two, both work toward inner clarification. Not as effective as Catcher, this is nevertheless excellent fare for Salinger adherents which include countless young adults among them.
