Sixth issue of Salinger’s classic tale of Holden Caufield and his boyhood angst. A high spot in modern American literature.

“The Catcher In The Rye is undoubtedly a 20th-century classic. It struck a popular note, particularly with young readers, who strongly identified with Holden Caulfield and his yearning for lost innocence. Salinger’s novel was, and continues to be, a phenomenal success” (Parker, 300).
