Since its first publication in 1951, The Catcher in the Rye has been reprinted hundreds of times, sparked passionate debate and even been blamed for several murders. During the late 1960s and early 1970s it was banned in American schools more than any other book. Why? What is it that makes this short novel so controversial – and so special? In this short 30-page guide, Luke Neima examines Salinger’s masterpiece and looks at what the critics have said about it over the years.

Luke Neima studied English literature at McGill University, and a masters in English literature at UCL. His writing has appeared in The White Review, The Times Literary Supplement and Prospect. He is the online editor of Granta magazine.
