The Catcher in the Rye–Part One

thecatcherintheryersFinished reading J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye, but my computer has given up the ghost, so it will be some time until I get around to writing a proper review.

In the meantime, the following seemingly random collection of words will serve as a somewhat summary and should make some sense if you’ve read the book.

Red hunting hat, red hair, blue coat, gold ring, yellow, green ink, poetry, baseball mitt, cigarette, checkers, cabin, crazy cannon, carrousel, zoo, museum, mummies, “Little Shirley Beans”, The Secret Goldfish, ducks, fish, lake, frozen, winter, rain, cab drivers, nuns, deaf-mute, morons, phonies, movies, Hollywood, bathrobes, dough, Pencey, fencing, dancing, digression, [writing on the wall], depressed, soaked, “If a body catch a body”, “big bang”, “killed me”, “no kidding”, “goddam”, “damn near bawling”, “damn happy”, “damn nice”, “damn…”

I could go on. 🙂
