LITTERED with them One beautifully ha placed adverb after the next In one paragraph I counted five Five gorgeous adverbs in a single solitary paragraph And it works oh how it works magnificently Take that Stephen KingBesides the adverbs I found two of the most incredible short stories I've ever read A Perfect Day for Bananafish and For Esmé with Love and Sualor Both of these stories left me with a catch in my throat my pulse racing and not just because of the adverbs and a compulsion to peel the pages back and re experience the power and emotions through this man's cunningly chosen words I tried to explain Esmé to my mother and found myself choking up with tearsInterestingly I could do this all day both stories are similar though one is devastating and the other hopeful Both involve a post WWII soldier suffering from PTSD Both involve the absolute delightful innocence of a child Both feature the most perfect dialogue Actually all of the nine stories feature dialogue I'm going to have to re read this one day just to study the dialogue One of the stories is almost 100% one side of a telephone call I mean this guy was brilliant I just wish he'd written Not all the stories contain the potency of the two I mentioned But each story deserves to be read thoughtfully and enjoyed fully methodically even reverently 5 stars for Esmé

R Esmé – with Love and Sualor Nine Stories is the US title; the book is published in many other countries as For Esmé with Love and Sualor and Other StoriesThe stories areA Perfect Day for Banana If kidnappers had snatched up J D Salinger some time in the early 1970s driven like madmen through the night and the next day too and imprisoned him in a small but pleasant room somewhere near Boise furnished him with with all mod cons and told him he wasn't going anyplace soon until he'd finished at the very least another nine stories and at best three or four complete novels; and if the kidnappers due to an endearing cocktail of naivete and compassion because you know they were just literature fans like you and me not blank eyed killers and they weren't entirely convinced about this whole caper to begin with let it be said let JD go for long walks to get inspiration but really to beat on a nearby farmhouse door and call the cops; and if they were then rounded up not too hard said the cops and put on trial not a jury in the land would have convicted them When the prosecution rested and the defence opened their lawyer would simply have issued a copy of Nine Stories to all 12 jurors and said Ladies and gentlemen I rest my caseThis is not to say that each of the Nine is such a great golden glowing nugget of controlled power insight and wisdom some are but that the whole is such elouent proof of the perspicacity intelligence and all round humanbeingness of JDS that reading this collection is very bittersweet how lovely it all is and how very little of it there is when duller pudgier fingered writers type on and on and publish and publish Anyone who has encountered comments by myself on Ye Olde Catcher in Ye Rye will now accuse me of inconsistency or at least be expecting me to accuse JDS of the same How can I hate the novel for its unbearable whine and Johnny one note somebody shut him up please tiresomeness and yet enjoy all the rest of JDS as I do? They're cut from the same cloth it's not like Picasso's blue period and Picasso the cubist which could have been different guys or the Velvet Underground's first and third albums which could have been a different band But I've come across this in different areas of the universe can't stand Tom Waits until Swordfishtrombones think he's a genius for three albums then can't stand him again Shakespeare's tragedies oui Shakespeare's comedies er non So maybe not that unusualJDS famously published all his stuff between 1951 and 1963 and then STOPPED Which is why the kidnappers pounced they gave him a good ten year rest and that was ENOUGH to their way of thinking And he stopped just as things were getting really interesting He writes of the murderous conformities of American educated middle class life and of the outcasts and especially young kids who either subvert this button down world or bail out swiftly Just as he stopped publishing things began to change the 60s began swinging and the youthuake as it has been termed was upon us Just the very stuff that you might have thought would have fascinated JD What do the kids do when they try to make their own rules up? I feel the absence of JDS throughout the 60s and 70s as i feel the absence of another American writer who STOPPED in 1963 Sylvia Plath I want to know what these two clever clogs would have made of the tumultuous ten years which followed the self stilling of their voices But back to the Nine Stories and to steal a fellow reviewer's catch phraseIs it a classic? Answer Yes GoddamnPS I realise I also speculated upon the advisability of kidnapping Thomas Bernhard elsewhere but that was to save the world from any further novels like Extinction whereas the JD Salinger kidnap is for the opposite reason But I would like to publicly state that I do not condone the imprisonment of any writers for any reasons so please don't try this at home

Nine StoriesNine Stories 1953 is a collection of short stories by American fiction writer J D Salinger published in April 1953 It includes two of his most famous short stories A Perfect Day for Bananafish and Fo If I can get serious for a moment and cast aside the brittle smartassed persona that the social networking aspect of goodreads tends to bring out I'd like to try to express what it is that drives me in this life It is the following belief instilled primarily by my mother an exceptionally smart woman who never suffered fools gladly but had the mitigating grace to be one of the warmest most generous women you could ever hope to meet as well as having one of the greatest voices you can imagine Buttercup Here's the main thing she taught me each of us has an inescapable responsibility to take whatever talent we have been given on this earth and to develop it as far and as well as life allowsThis is so deeply ingrained in my beliefs that I can pretty much trace every major decision I've made in my life back to itWhat does this have to do with the price of eggs? Well it's the reason Jerome David Salinger makes me as mad as all get out Because I can certainly understand why given the perfection of the stories in this collection any writer might not want to risk spoiling his reputation by following up with work that might not reach the same level Hell nothing could possibly reach the perfection of the stories For Esme with Love and Sualor The Laughing Man Down by the Dinghy or Just Before the War with the Eskimos And while I'm not really a great fan of Seymour Glass A Perfect Day for Bananafish is pretty damned awesome as wellSo yeah JD after those stories it's hard to imagine anything better Even anything comparableBut that's still no excuse for not trying you arrogant egotistical bastard You were dealt a monumental unimaginable talent And for you to suat there in fucking communicado in your bloody bunker in New England resting on your admittedly golden freaking laurels is an act of unconscionable unpardonable selfishness I could almost convince myself that your genius crossing over into madness was the explanation for your lack of output but you seem craftily able to sic your lawyers on anyone perceived to encroach on your goddamned privacySo while I can understand the impulse of not wanting to risk your reputation I sure as hell can't forgive it You were granted an incredible gift You should be using itAnd sorry folks it's far beyond me to locate exactly where the genius lies in the particular stories mentioned You really just need to read them for yourselves
