For Esme - with Love and Squalor Summary

For Esme - with Love and Squalor: And Other Stories by J. D. Salinger

A collection of nine exceptional short stories from the author of `The Catcher in the Rye', J D Salinger. The book includes two of Salinger's most famous and critically acclaimed pieces, which helped to establish him among contemporary literary greats. The title story - a soldier's recollection of his meeting with a young girl, Esme, before being sent into combat - prompted a flood of readers' letters when it was first published in The New Yorker in 1950. The haunting, `A Perfect Day for Bananafish' is the first of the author's many stories to feature the Glass family and follows eldest sibling, Seymour Glass, and his wife, Muriel, as they honeymoon in Florida.
