The book Originally published for adults,has become a common part of high school and college curricula throughout the English-speaking world. Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today.
"If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them."
His constant wry observations capture the essence of the eternal teenage experience of alienation as he talk about about what he encounters, from teachers to phonies (the two of course are not mutually exclusive)and his life.
