Stunning piece of writing Read this on it s own before later reading as part of Nine Stories which I reviewed This short story was the opening story featured in Nine Stories but first appeared in the January 1948 issue of the New Yorker It s arguably his best short story and the one that bought him critical acclaim It was also the first time Salinger used the character of Seymour Glass he would go on to chronicle the Glass family siblings in later stories Using great dialog to set the scene the story opens in a hotel in Florida before moving to the beach as Salinger presents brief facts on the characters and describes a series of events but it s then over to reader to try and fill in the blanks and work out whats going on Obviously for those who haven t read it I m not going to give away the main event surrounding the story and will just say that Salinger s story works as a sort of metaphor for the immediate years in American following WW2 where consumer society seems to be taking over It s a story that seriously stays with you which is remarkable really considering it s short I have loved the short stories of Cheever Yates and Carver Salinger here is eually as good Takedown Winning Season 8 Winning Season of The New Yorker It was anthologized in 1949's 55 Sho.

THE protagonist Seymour Glass has been scarred from his experiences in World War II and is suffering from psychological distress He is a total misfit in a world that seems to be guided by greed and materialism He has no real outlet for the complicated and bottled up emotions he carries inside him He is certainly not getting the tender loving care he needs as he has been released early from the Army hospital Seymour shuns the pretentious world of adults and seeks refuge in children He seems to share a much better rapport with the latter than he does with his wife Muriel who is extremely materialistic She reads cheap women magazines while he reads poetry She is concerned with the latest fashion fads than with her husband s emotional and psychological problems He prefers playing the piano in the hotel lounge and lying alone on the beach than being in her company All her materialism probably repulses him Communicating with children especially Sybil provides Seymour succour from the shellshock he has suffered during war His imagination is at its best when he tells her a story about bananafish and how they keep gobbling fish until they bloat up to get stuck in doorways Seymour s bananafish could also be an allusion to the snobbish class which is a slave to capitalism and goes on spending sprees ending up with hoarding things they don t really need Their greed devours them The ending which takes place in the hotel bedroom is bound to take you by surprise like it did me Muriel is sleeping on the bed He takes out an Ortgies calibre 765 automatic aims the pistol and fires a bullet But does he aerial fire to scare her Or does he shoot himself in the mirror sending shards flying all across the room Or does he open fire on the bedroom s window pane shattering it entirely with the pieces falling five floors down This is one of J D Salinger s best short stories if not the best Read and treat yourself to some classy entertainment
