Weekend Ramblings: Classics Retold Reminder (Catcher in the Rye)

ClassicsRetold

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting a Classics Retold sign-up reminder featuring one classic story from the American/Misc Classics category which you can sign up to feature on your blog.  The sign up sheet is located on the CLASSICS RETOLD tab on the top of the page, along with full details and links to the other co-hosts’ sign-up pages.

This week’s feature classic:
CATCHER IN THE RYE by J.D. Salinger

Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with “cynical adolescent.” Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he’s been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists…  His constant wry observations about what he encounters, from teachers to phonies (the two of course are not mutually exclusive) capture the essence of the eternal teenage experience of alienation. (Goodreads)

The Catcher in the Rye

Novel re-tellings, adaptations, modernizations, and books that reference this classic include:

 . Catcher Caught Prep Collector.

. Burglar in the Rye Perks of Being a Wallflower 60 Years Later.

Any more come to mind?  Please help out by posting them in the comments!
