Franny Glass is a pretty, effervescent college student on a date with her intellectually confident boyfriend, Lane. They appear to be the perfect couple, but as they struggle to communicate with each other about the things they really care about, slowly their true feelings come to the surface. The second story in this book, "Zooey", plunges us into the world of her ethereal, sophisticated family. When Franny's emotional and spiritual doubts reach new heights, her older brother Zooey, a misanthropic former child genius, offers her consolation and brotherly advice. Written in Salinger's typically irreverent style, these two stories offer a touching snapshot of the distraught mindset of early adulthood and are full of the insightful emotional observations and witty turns of phrase that have helped make Salinger's reputation what it is today.
Fair. Acceptable-This Paper Back Book is readable. The covers are intact but may have creases. Pages may have a number of folds/creases and may include considerable notes and highlighting but text is legible. The "Head", "Tail" and "Fore-Edge" may include considerable markings and/or spots. Thanks for supporting our Mission at Goodwill.
Classic Salinger, although not quite as good as 'Raise High the Roofbeam Carpenters' but the characters' dialogue is hilarious. It's a great way to get to know the other members of the "Glass" family- they're a bit disturbed to say the least. Entertaining!

Absolutely Loved Franny and Zooey
JD Salinger is so amazing and both these stories, but especailly Zooey, prove that. Salinger devolpes understandable, if not likeable, characters that you as the reader feel compelled to keep a tight hold of. I have read all of Salinger's stories about the Glass family and they are all spectacular. My favorites are Zooey and A Perfect Day for a Banana Fish. Excellent reads, although they are in a slightly different style than Salinger's most well known book, Catcher In They Rye.
