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.

About The Author

More than 20 years of seclusion and silence have taken their toll on J. D. Salinger's literary reputation, but the impact made by The Catcher in The Rye (1951) and the Glass family stories was deep enough to make a lasting impression and to assure his continued readership.

From Our Editors

In the toils of the Glass family and their utilitarian lifestyle lay two children. Franny is the youngest, away at school and slowly giving into doubts about the meaning of life. She becomes obsessed with a book that prompts her to pray away the ills of her life, only to fall victim to a nervous breakdown. Back at home, Zooey, the eldest brother in the family of seven, is worried sick over the state if his little sister. He is all too familiar with the way she feels, so much so that he feels impelled to explain to her the alienation as he tries to bring her around with a virtuous lecture on life. J. D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey is a keen take on life from two mutated perspectives. At once dark and witty, it's as provocative as it is entertaining.
