Holden Caulfield learns about some of life’s hard lessons after spending a few days alone in New York City. Great summer read before school.

Your first introduction to this book may have been as “required reading” for a high school English class with a teacher who – try as he/she might – failed to convey the humor and poignancy of the story.

“Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know” – J. D. Salinger, Catcher in the Rye

Elizabeth Gilbert discusses and signs Committed
The author of Eat, Pray, Love continues her story where the last one left off. After falling in love, Elizabeth and Felipe make a pact not to ever be legally joined (both had previously been divorced). However, when Felipe is stopped at the American border, the two discover that they must marry or Felipe will not be able to enter the United States ever again. Gilbert spends the ten months they have to wait for the US government to permit them to return learning about marriage, illuminating the ins and outs of this ancient institution.
