"I thought I knew this J.D. Salinger novel really well...but Sarah Graham has convinced me otherwise...The critical reception section is fascinating...All Catcher in the Rye teachers should read this book." - The Use of English

"Sarah Graham's commentary on The Catcher in the Rye is concise and coherent...Her treatment of Salinger's novel provides enough depth to give most readers new ways to think about the novel. At the same time, the book is short enough that it can be used easily by those who haven't the need for something more elaborate. [Graham's book] is worth seeing and worth using...[and will] contribute to ongoing discussion and debate that will, together, keep Salinger's novel 'alive'." - European Journal of American Studies
