Franny and Zooeyby J D Salinger
I named my yellow Lab "Zooey" and believe me, I don't make those kinds of decisions hastily. It was either Zooey or Pooh, and, well, I wondered what kind of looks I might get from strangers, shouting "Pooh!" at my dog in the park. Would people know that Pooh was his name, not a command? So I settled on Zooey. About the book, though: When I take trains, I like to imagine Lane on the platform beside me, waiting for Franny. It's one of my all-time favorite opening scenes.
Synopses & Reviews
The author writes: FRANNY came out in The New Yorker in 1955, and was swiftly followed, in 1957 by ZOOEY. Both stories are early, critical entries in a narrative series I'm doing about a family of settlers in twentieth-century New York, the Glasses. It is a long-term project, patently an ambiguous one, and there is a real-enough danger, I suppose that sooner or later I'll bog down, perhaps disappear entirely, in my own methods, locutions, and mannerisms. On the whole, though, I'm very hopeful. I love working on these Glass stories, I've been waiting for them most of my life, and I think I have fairly decent, monomaniacal plans to finish them with due care and all-available skill.
Meet Franny and her younger brother, Zooey, in two Salinger stories now available in a trade paper edition.
