TWYFORD, at the Bishop of St. Asaph's, 1771 Dear son: I have ever had pleasure in obtaining any little anecdotes of my ancestors. Imagining it may be equally agreeable to(1) you to know the circumstances of my life, many of which you are yet unacquainted with, and expecting the enjoyment of a week's uninterrupted leisure in my present country retirement, I sit down to write them for you. Phoebe's Notebook in The Catcher in the Rye. Before Holden wakes Phoebe up, he sits down and reads through her school notebook (check this out—it's not too far from the start of Chapter Twenty-One). Holden, much like we do, finds it endearing, states that "kid’s notebooks kill [him]," and adds that he could "read that kind of stuff […] all day and all night long" (22.18).

But what does he like so much about it? Take a look: Why has south eastern Alaska so many caning factories? Because there's so much salmonWhy has it valuable forests? Because it has the right climate.What has our government done to makelife easier for the Alaskan Eskimos? Phoebe's notebook is the least phony expression of thought we've seen so far in the novel. The question is this: is Catcher in the Rye also one of these “kid’s notebooks”? It’s definitely up to interpretation, but—call us naïve; we still think, in some way, that Catcher is just some kid’s notebook. People who Shmooped this also Shmooped... Salinger's 'Catcher In The Rye' Resonated Behind Iron Curtain As Well.

J.D. Salinger, the reclusive American author of the seminal coming-of-age novel "The Catcher in the Rye," has died at the age of 91. "The Catcher," with its immortal teenage protagonist -- the anguished, rebellious Holden Caulfield -- came out in 1951 during a time of anxious, Cold War conformity. The book struck a chord with American teenagers who identified with the novel's themes of alienation, innocence, and rebellion. But when the novel was translated into Russian during the "Khrushchev thaw," its antihero's tormented soul-searching also reverberated among admirers throughout the Soviet Bloc. "Nad propastyu vo rzhi" was first published in the Soviet Union in the November 1960 issue of the popular literary magazine "Inostrannaya Literatura" (Overseas Literature). The translation became an instant sensation, and dog-eared copies of the magazine were passed from reader to reader.
