For Esme - with Love and Squalor: And Other Stories

J. D. Salinger

In honour of the centennial of J. D. Salinger, Penguin reissues all four of his books in beautiful commemorative hardback An American soldier has a strange encounter with an orphaned English teenager the night before he leaves for war. A four-year-old boy runs away in a dinghy; a missionary’s child is kidnapped by Chinese bandits. A honeymoon in Florida goes awry with tragic consequences. Including the first stories to feature Salinger’s beloved Glass family characters, this brilliantly varied collection offers a vivid introduction to the work of one of the most admired and widely read American novelists of the twentieth century. Witty, urbane and frequently affecting, For Esme - with Love and Squalor sits alongside Salinger’s very best work - a gem that will be passed down for many generations to come.
