Library Staff Recommendation: Nine Stories

Nine Stories
by J.D. Salinger
Greenfield Open Stacks 813 Sa33n 2001

One of the few books of J.D. Salinger’s published work, Nine Stories collects an array of diverse stories, each a gem in its own right. There’s the story of the frustrated housewife, the soldier stricken with post-traumatic stress disorder, and the boy genius on a cruise ship with his family, to name a few. The collection also includes two stories featuring members of the Glass family, who are featured in Salinger’s book Franny and Zooey (Greenfield Open Stacks 813 Sa33f). Nine Stories is perfect for both readers new to Salinger’s work and to those who are already familiar with his literary worlds.
