I read it again, the first time I was 13, after 21 years I still find it amusing.
It's 2 days of Holden Coalfield life, wondering around in NY, after he is kicked out of school, for the third time.
The story happens after WWII, so he is as old as my grandfather.
And that's the most amazing thing in it, how each generation understood his troubles and worries and loneliness, yet there are such a gap between them.
What did you find in common with Holden?
"The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one."
It kills me.
