The Catcher In The Rye
The epitomy of what Cheever and O'Hare both try to capture regarding upper middle class isolation, but in this novel the hero's a pubescent teenager.
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.
It's funny. Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.
