Title:
Catcher in the Rye
Annotation:
Two days in the life of Holden Caulfield, a disenchanted, alienated, angst-ridden youth, are depicted as he reveals his touching, often humorous view of people and the world around him. The language reflects both the times and Holden's worldview, which is changing as he begins to acknowledge the emotional intensity prevalent in various relationships he holds.
