This quote is directly from the book. It shows how Holden meets people, likes them for a little bit, then turns his back on them. He wants to have people and not be so lonely but he just can't do it.

Books: Nine Stories, by J.D. Salinger. As a youngster, I loved this book. Still do as an adult. It's another great read from J.D. Salinger.

Literary Mixtape: Seymour Glass

Salinger is an amazing writer.his characters are charming, he has an ability to suck you in. "For Esme", "A Perfect Day for Bananafish", and "Teddy", are definitely my favorite short stories.

Yeah, dude. I mean, yup - things became ugly - stuff got messy - but we were so damn close to each other - Since November, things just spiraled out of control. I believe it was written to happen that way, but I wish for once, that both of us can defy destiny and just TALK one day. Just TALK! Because, all of a sudden - a conversation that was NEVER supposed to STOP, STOPPED. And, it's okay. I don't even want to be FRIENDS anymore. I just want to have one CONVERSATION. Last one. Cry my heart…

I mean, yup - things became ugly - stuff got messy - but we were so damn close to each other - I just want to have one CONVERSATION. Cry my heart out.

JD Salinger: “What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.
