Synopsis

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 ideal campus couple: beautiful, intelligent, their whole lives ahead of them. But one weekend 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? Zooey is Franny's older brother. They come from a sophisticated yet highly eccentric family, all seven siblings former child stars, all strange and enchanting and damaged in their own way. And when Franny's anxiety spirals into a more serious breakdown, Zooey is the only one who might be able to save her. A novel in two halves, 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.
