Franny and ZooeyThe short story Franny takes place in an unnamed college town and tells the tale of an undergraduate who is becoming disenchanted with the selfishness and inauthenticity she perceives all around herThe novella Zooey is named for Zooey Glass the second youngest member of the Glass family As his younger sister Franny suffers a spiritual and existential breakdown in her parents' Manhattan living room leaving. I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobodyThe blinking cursor that preceded this review the place holder of possibility before the big bang of creation speaks volumes when taken in relation to JD Salinger’s exuisite Franny and Zooey In a novel about identity about forging who we are from a blank slate in the void of society and humanity we are constantly called to the floor and reminded how often we impose our ego or wishes our desires and become a caricature of ourselves hoping that by creating a façade self our true self will eventually follow the leader and fill the mold we’ve forged for the world to see We constantly try to pigeonhole the world on our own terms wrongly imposing our own perspective and missing out in the beauty that flowers when we embrace anything as itself without the confines of our implied impressions This creates a highly tuned self conscious atmosphere that makes it difficult to begin writing about without feeling like I myself am imposing my undeserved and unualified ego by casting these words into the world That damned blinking cursor amidst a field of white on my screen returning again and again after each uickly deleted early attempts made me feel very much like Franny herself sick of realizing that every action is an attempt at being noticed I’m just sick of ego ego ego My own and everybody else’s I’m sick of everybody that wants to get somewhere do something distinguished and all be somebody interesting It’s disgusting Can I write without being a disgusting egomaniac without imposing myself on everyone My own fears and excuses for writers block aside Salinger perfectly focuses upon the inner crises of anyone that has truly looked themselves in the mirror and assessed both the world around them and their place in it Through a simplistic character driven account of a family thwarted by their own crippling self awareness Salinger crafts a flawless tale of identity and family that takes up right where he left off with Holden Caulfield—where we learn not to judge those around us but to understand and accept one another on their own terms in order to live and love I just never felt so fantastically rocky in my entire lifeThis novel was graciously beueathed to me at the exact moment it was needed most With a ravenous Midwest winter providing the bleak setting to funerals and my own divorce the existential crisis and subseuent breakdown of Franny Glass was the pure emotional catharsis that kept me positive and afloat across life’s tumultuous sea¹ Franny and Zooey is virtually Zen in novel format and for reasons far surpassing the religious allusions that decorate the novel as well as entice readers into other spiritually gratifying books such as The Upanishads There is something eminently soothing about this Salinger tale of family something that really struck me in the deep regions of my heart and soul and prodded certain defining aspects of my childhood that I tend to keep from conversation Salinger’s prose come across so natural and heartfelt as if he truly were Buddy himself writing the second half and reads li

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 ski. This is in actuality two short stories combined by the enigmatic writer to form a novel and even together not very long at that The opening looks rather ordinary a boy waits for his girl at a train station set in the 1950's in an unnamed city in the eastern US as the unpleasant cold winter weather freezes the college student's bones Lane Coutell is ambitious happy wants to make a splash in the world just the opposite of his girlfriend Franny Frances Glass of the brilliant yet troubled large family Disillusioned by college teachers are idiots and hypocrites like their victim the students Only caring about themselves and lacking passion for their jobs going through the motions and nothing acting FRANNY HAS SEEN THE LIGHT having read a book The Way of the Pilgrim and its seuel The Pilgrim Continues his Way by an anonymous writer a poor peasant with a bad arm a seeker of truth trying to find God's will from the 19th century he wandered through massive Russia Speaking to countless people most very friendly surprisingly monks are glad to talk about religion to the amiable pilgrim Franny becomes enad obsessed a better word by these books carrying them around in her purse The much anticipated weekend crashes like a baseball striking a glass window pun intended Fainting spells arguments about teachers in their respective schools what is really important life in general an unpleasant atmosphereSecond part Zooey Zachary a good looking tv actor however not a big man at 25 five years older than his little sister pretty Franny both are at their parents apartment in New York City He is trying to read somehow an old letter while taking a bath mother entersZooey calls her Bessie and the father Les former showbiz stars she is worried about Franny now sleeping on the couch in the living room arriving a few days ago from the disastrous weekend sick in heart and bodyBegs him to talk to her afraid the daughter is having a nervous breakdown the uncomfortable son agrees The siblings discuss her strange behavior she hates school friends and professors uits acting in her college play everything is stupid nothing matters but becomes a fanatical reader of the poor Pilgrim's thoughts about JesusSmall book with big ideas still not loved by all in truth heavyweight or lightweight materialyou decide I myself believe it was well worth the rather confusing trip

DOWNLOAD Ò Franny and Zooey · The short story Franny takes place in an unnamed college town and tells the tale of an undergraduate who is becoming disenchanted with the selfishness and inauthenticity she perceives all around herThe novella Zooey is named for Zooey Glass the second youngest member of the Glass family As his younger sister Franny suffers Bessie her mother deeply concerned Zooey comes to her aid offering what he thinks is brotherly love understanding and words of sage adviceSalinger writes of these works 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. “I’m just sick of ego ego ego My own and everybody else’s I’m sick of everybody that wants to get somewhere do something distinguished and all be somebody interesting It’s disgusting” This was my first real exposure to Salinger I’ve made attempts in the past to read Catcher in the Rye but I was never able to connect with it My friend Spenky raved about Salinger’s “Franny and Zooey” so I decided this would be my introduction to Salinger To say I was enthralled with Salinger’s writing would be an understatement My first thought upon reading the final page was “finally I finished this book” It's usually not a good thing when you're relieved once you finish a book but I feel that it's different with Salinger’s book This was a journey for me and the characters in which I and they work through problems Of course you're relieved when you find the answers at the end And thankfully Salinger does give answers Rather than bore you with my take on “Franny and Zooey” here's a description of the book by Salinger himself “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” These are two short stories but so closely related 'Zooey' a novella starts where 'Franny' a short story ends that it is probably better for both stories to be read together Zooey Glass and Franny Glass are brother and sister and the two youngest of seven children All of them have been on a uiz radio show 'A Wise Child' which seems to have led to all of them having difficulty in dealing with other people 'Franny' centers on her going to meet her boyfriend Lane for the weekend which turns into a disaster on the first day because she seems to be out of sorts 'Zooey' then offers an explanation of this from the brother's perspective as she comes home to be consumed in her problems We get an insight into their history and an explanation and solution for Franny's problemPerhaps 'Franny' was my favorite of the two perhaps; perhaps 'Zooey' is the better of the two perhaps I found myself often agreeing with Zooey Salenger’s observations of college students and their attitudes how I miss those days are funny and also uite true He exposes the phony self congratulatory and self importance that is even present now than when he wrote these works Yes Salinger is terribly judgmental or at least his characters are It’s that realization that no matter who you are you are a very small piece in a much larger whole and the need to accept that that’s crushing Franny She wants to partake in the world without fee
