The very short novel Franny and Zooey by J. D. Salinger is in actuality a short story and a novella which were originally published separately but in 1961 were put together as published as one. The book focuses on sister Franny and brother Zooey, the two youngest members of the colorful Jewish/Irish Glass family.

The short story, entitled “Franny” tells a story about Franny going to visit her boyfriend at his university. Franny is going through a difficult time as she has become disenchanted with academia and she is questioning the importance of a college education as well as the selfishness and falseness that she sees all around her. Her boyfriend, Lane is rather obtuse and much more concerned with his affairs than in trying to help Franny. The novella, Zooey, takes place very shortly after while Franny is still in the throes of a breakdown. The mother is very concerned and approaches Zooey, in a very amusing bathroom scene, and ask him to help Franny. He does try but fails in his first attempt. He then phones her and pretends to be one of the other brothers, she eventually sees through this ruse, but they continue to talk and Franny appears to be more peaceful when the book ends.

I have to admit that it took the second story before I fully understood that Franny was having an emotional crisis. I thought that she was pregnant and having difficulty dealing with this. Apparently I was not alone in this misconception, even Salinger’s publishers thought that the short story was about a college girl facing up to pregnancy. I also have to admit that I didn’t fully understand what the author was hoping to accomplish with these stories although he does seem to stress that life can become meaningless and that religion can help in engaging one’s devotion in a meaningful way.

If you like his other Glass family stories, then you'll probably enjoy the two in this volume. I preferred the first story ("Franny") over the second, but the second picks up where the first leaves off, so the book is almost like a novel. ( )

I read Franny and Zooey in school; I think I was about 13 or 14, and it must have been on a reading list in English class; I am sure we didn't read it as a class or I would have understood it properly. As it was, I was totally seduced by it and wanted to be Franny.
Some 55 years later I am Zooey, or some aspects of him, particularly his cynicism, but what I'm not sure he realized (though I am sure Salinger did) was that he tended to be exactly what he despised. But maybe he did.
There is so much about the book left unsaid that it's almost annoying, but the description of the time and the caricatures of people were pretty much spot on. I think I would really like to know if Salinger himself was as affected as his characterizations.
This is no kind of review but I can't do better with it. I will say that I know why it's no longer on reading lists in high school - I can't imagine any of the teenagers I know being able to relate to it in any way. ( )

This was very popular w/ the literate oddballs when I was in high school. I still see Salinger's name pop up here on GoodReads amongst my younger friends so I reckon he's still popular. That's a bit odd to me b/c I so strongly associate him w/ a particular time. What was this about? A brother & sister living w/ their mom & the good-natured squabbling amongst them? No wonder I related - except for the good-natured part. ( )

There is no mistake, Franny and Zooey is a Salinger book - made up of two short stories, "Franny" and "Zooey" (the latter, however, uses the term short rather loosely). And the book does involve familiar Salinger ideas: Phonies and the rich, privileged kids who hate them. The stories focus on the younger siblings of the Glass family. Franny being the youngest and Zooey being the youngest male. While little detail is revealed about her familial life in the short story named after her, Franny appears in "Zooey" to shed some light on the details of her story. I'm not impressed. I don't even know how I got around to completing the book. Determination, I suppose. ( )

As nearly as possible in the spirit of Matthew Salinger, age one, urging a luncheon companion to accept a cool lima bean, I urge my editor, mentor and (heaven help him) closest friend, William Shawn, genius domus of the New Yorker, lover of the long shot, protector of the unprolific, defender of the hopelessly flamboyant, most unreasonably modest of born great artist-editors, to accept this pretty skimpy-looking book.

Franny: Though brilliantly sunny, Saturday morning was overcoat weather again, not just topcoat weather, as it had been all week and as everyone had hoped it would stay for the big weekend - the weekend of the Yale game.
Zooey: The facts at hand presumably speak for themselves, but a trifle more vulgarly, I suspect, than facts even usually do.
