A few episodes ago Adam challenged Emily to read J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. She got to work and now is back to talk about her experience in a new episode of What Are We Reading? We chat about the reputation of this popular novel, Salinger’s place among the American moderns, and the striking thematic conversation between this story and Huckleberry Finn.
– Catcher in the Rye, Franny and Zooey, and Nine Stories by J.D. Salinger
– The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
– The Old Man and the Sea and “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place” by Ernest Hemingway
– The Moviegoer by Walker Percy
