Franny and Zooey by J. D. Salinger
Two wonderful stories about members of the Glass family by the author of `The Catcher in the Rye'.
The first story takes place in downtown New Haven during the weekend of `the Yale game' and follows Franny Glass on a date with her collegiate boyfriend. The second focuses on Zooey Glass, a somewhat emotionally toughened genius. As his younger sister Franny hits an emotional crisis in her parents' Manhattan living room, Zooey comes to her aid, offering love, understanding, and words of sage advice.
