J.D. Salinger’s humble intro

JD Salinger, Books, Reading, Literature, Franny & Zooey

I read a fun book last summer written by Jeffrey Eugenides. It is called The Marriage Plot and is basically a love story between really smart people. One of those involved is a Divinity Studies major, so his love is very transcendent. Prominent among all the forms of prayer he tried was the Jesus Prayer, the same prayer that Franny Glass becomes obsessed with in J.D. Salinger’s Franny and Zooey.

Taking this as a sign, I decided to reread Franny and Zooey and was surprised by the humility of Salinger’s introduction to the text, above.
