Let's Talk Books - J.D. Salinger's "Nine Stories"
“J.D. Salinger's writing is original, first rate, serious and beautiful. Here are nine of his stories, and one further reason that they are so interesting, and so powerful seen all together, is that they are paradoxes. From the outside, they are often very funny; inside, they are about heartbreak, and convey it; they can do this because they are pure." Eudora Welty, New York Times Book Review, 4/5/1953.
