I was younger than Holden Caulfield when I first read this book; now I'm several multiples of his age. It's still a brilliant and thought-provoking work, and must surely be a darling of contemporary editors and agents with their mania for "voice." One thought as I read this time is that Holden's journey home has certain affinities with the Odyssey of Homer. It's an adventure plot. Yes, I enjoyed it very much.
