席捲新世代騷動不安的靈魂 跨越60年依然不滅的捕手熱 反社會者的聖經 禁書爭議延燒至今 「他媽的 這世界！」 本書為作者唯一一部長篇創作，透過主角霍爾頓漫無目的在外遊走兩天的遭遇，以其特有的眼光、態度與語言，寫實呈現少年的感受、想法與心理。甫出版便在美國掀起一陣「捕手熱」（Catcher Cult），大眾反應兩極化，使此書既被列為禁書，又被選為教材，更成為無人不讀的小說作品。霍爾頓對這虛偽社會的厭惡與反抗、對成人世界的措手不及、對純真年代快樂時光的懷想……再再觸動舉世野少年騷亂不安的心靈。 「我拿了手提箱什麼的準備動身，還在樓梯口站了一下子，沿著那條混帳通道望了最後一眼。不知怎的，我幾乎哭了出來。我戴上我那頂紅色獵人帽，照我喜歡的樣子將鴨舌轉到腦袋後頭，然後使出了我全身的力氣大喊道：『好好睡吧，你們這些窩囊廢！』我敢打賭我把這一層樓的所有雜種全都喊醒了。隨後我就離開了那地方，不知哪個混蛋在樓梯上扔了一地花生殼，他媽的差點摔斷了我的混帳脖子。」 ★本書中譯版《麥田捕手》由麥田出版。 The "brilliant, funny, meaningful novel" (The New Yorker) that established J. D. Salinger as a leading voice in American literature--and that has instilled in millions of readers around the world a lifelong love of books. "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth." The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caufield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days.
