J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye was published more than 70 years ago, but remains enshrined as one of the most explosive debut novels in modern literature and as a work whose theme of teenage rebellion resonates across cultures.
Salinger recounts two days in the life of Holden Caulfield after he has been expelled from prep school -- a 16-year-old confronting the great themes of life and death and railing against the “phoniness” of the adult world.
‘[Salinger was a] contemporary master--a genius....Here was a man who used language as if it were pure energy beautifully controlled, and who knew exactly what he was doing in every silence as well as in every word.’ New York Times
'Difficile d'imaginer aujourd'hui qu'un livre puisse déclencher à la fois un tel enthousiasme et un tel rejet. Il a marqué de façon indélébile toute la jeunesse américaine ….puis la jeunesse européenne, en particulier en France.’ Le Monde
