About the Author

J. D. Salinger was born in New York City on January 1, 1919. He attended Manhattan public schools, Valley Forge Military Academy in Pennsylvania, and three colleges, but received no degrees. He was from an upper class Jewish family and they lived on the upper west side of Manhattan on Park Avenue. mostrar mais Salinger joined the U. S. Army in 1942 and fought in the D-Day invasion at Normandy as well as the Battle of the Bulge, but suffered a nervous breakdown due to all he had seen and experienced in the war and checked himself into an Army hospital in Germany in 1945. In December 1945, his short story I'm Crazy was published in Collier's. In 1947, his short story A Perfect Day for Bananafish was published in The New Yorker. Throughout his lifetime, he wrote more than 30 short stories and a handful of novellas, which were published in magazines and later collected in works such as Nine Stories, Franny and Zooey, and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction. The Catcher in the Rye, published in 1951, was his only novel. His last published story, Hapworth 16, 1924, appeared in 1965. He spent the remainder of his years in seclusion and silence in a home in Cornish, New Hampshire. He died of natural causes on January 27, 2010 at the age of 91. Salinger always wanted to write the great American novel; when he succeeded in this with Catcher in the Rye, he was unprepared for the onslaught on privacy issues that this popularity brought on. He never wanted to be in the spotlight and retreated from all contacts he had in New York City. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Pequena biografia
Jerome David Salinger was an American writer best known for his novel The Catcher in the Rye. Salinger published several short stories in Story magazine in the early 1940s before serving in World War II. In 1948, his critically acclaimed story "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" appeared in The New Yorker, which became home to much of his later work. The Catcher in the Rye was published in 1951 and became an immediate popular success. Salinger's depiction of adolescent alienation and loss of innocence in the protagonist Holden Caulfield was influential, especially among adolescent readers. The novel was widely read and controversial.

'For Esme with Love and Squalor', melhor história da coleção, focaliza um jovem soldado americano que está em treinamento na Inglaterra pouco antes da invasão da Normandia. Ele se mantém sozinho e parece ser um cara bastante reflexivo, andando por esta pequena cidade inglesa. Ele conhece Esmé, muito jovem, de 13 ou 14 anos, que está tomando chá com a família em um café. Ela se senta com ele e eles compartilham uma conversa muito pessoal e estranha na qual ela lhe pede para escrever para ela do front (with love) e também uma história - de preferência "sobre a miséria" (& squalor). O diálogo e a estranha conexão entre essas duas pessoas, que são de mundos bastante separados, mostra como as pessoas podem se encontrar inesperadamente e ter uma conexão surpreendente, quase espiritual. Ao contrário de Holden Calulfield, a complicada figura que narra o romance Apanhador no Campo de Centeio, Esmé não é um sinônimo de angústia adolescente nem compõe uma alegoria da mesma. (os Caulfields eram essencialmente nova-iorquinos ricos com ambições para seu filho.)… (mais)
