For Esme - with Love and Squalor Summary

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

In honour of the centennial of the birth of J.D. Salinger in 1919, Penguin reissues all four of his books in beautiful commemorative hardback editions - with artwork and text based on the very first Salinger editions published in the 1950s and 1960s.

A collection of nine exceptional stories from one of the great American voices of the twentieth century. Witty, urbane and frequently affecting, For Esme - with Love and Squalor sits alongside Salinger's very best work - a gem that will be passed down for many generations to come.

'The most perfectly balanced collection of stories I know' Ann Patchett

For Esme - with Love and Squalor Reviews

His work meant a lot to me when I was a young person and his writing still sings. -- Dave Eggers
It was a very pure voice he had. There was no one like him -- Martin Amis
He was the poet of youthful alienation before youth really knew what that was * Sunday Times *

About J. D. Salinger

J. D. Salinger was born in 1919 and died in January 2010. He grew up in New York City and wrote short stories from an early age, but his breakthrough came in 1948 with the publication in the New Yorker of 'A Perfect Day for Bananafish'. The Catcher in the Rye was his first and only novel, published in 1951. It remains one of the most translated, taught and reprinted texts, and has sold over 65 million copies worldwide. He went on to write three further, critically acclaimed, best-selling works of fiction: Franny and Zooey, For Esme - With Love And Squalor and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters, and Seymour - An Introduction. Salinger continued to write throughout his life and left behind a large body of unpublished work.
