Product description

A funny, poignant snapshot of young adulthood from the much-loved author of The Catcher in the Rye Franny Glass and Lane Coutell are the perfect campus couple: beautiful, intelligent, their whole lives ahead of them. But one weekend when Franny is visiting, amid the excitement of the big Yale game, something goes wrong and tensions begin to surface. Are they really such a perfect match after all? Franny's older brother is Zooey. They come from a sophisticated yet highly eccentric family: all seven Glass siblings are former child stars, all strange and enchanting and damaged in their own way. And when Franny's anxiety spirals into a full-blown breakdown, Zooey is the only one who might be able to save her. A novel in two intertwining stories, Franny and Zooey brilliantly captures the emotional strains and traumas of entering adulthood. It is a gleaming example of the wit, precision and poignancy that have made J.D. Salinger one of the most beloved American novelists of the twentieth century.
