Nine Stories by J.D. Salinger is one of my favorite books of all time. It is – as its name suggests – a collection of 9 short stories. My favorites are “A Perfecct Day for Bananafish” and “For Esmé – with Love and Squalor,” but I will write about those on another date.
I have always loved J.D. Salinger and short stories, so this is a perfect pairing for my tastes. Salinger was such a gifted story writer. It takes a lot of thought and talent to create a well-crafted short story, and Salinger was a master.
