E isn t much to say except maybe that his stories all share this sort "Of Melancholy Which Is Probably "melancholy which is probably makes me love his writings so much God help me if they ever publish my early stories You can see Salinger in here and the things he later id so well But they are practice Don t know why I said I would write a review of this considering I already have not one but TWO pre reviews belowI have probably already surpassed the word count of the entire book at this point in the review aloneAnyway This is not Salinger s best in my opinion not enough Glass family by a mile but Salinger s mediocre is still miles ahead of #Most People S BestThat S Enough Of #people s bestThat s enough of reviewBottom line If you need a book you can read in 15 minutes you can t find much better than this one nobody Children of the Sun does it like salingerdo NOT mention the fact that i m nowone with his published works D I feel a little guilty reading this because these stories were never meant to be republished after their original publications in magazines in the 1940s And worse with illustrations Salinger would have HATED this So with that in mind its hard to give this collection of stories a real rating As a Salinger fan I give it 5 stars for overall reading experience the chance to read some of his earlier works is very exciting They re not nearly as good as some of his later stories Franny Bananafish Uncle Wiggle in Connecticut etc but you can still hear the Approaches To Academic Reading And Writing distinct Salinger voice in them The last story Once a Week Won t Kill You was the best of the threeThe publication itself is pretty poorly put together and I would give it only one star The illustrations were horrendous but apparently the rights to these stories was murky and they could only be published with the addition of annotationseducational information or illustrations I would have preferred the former Seriously illustrations I give this a 45 rating rounded up to 5 I received an audio copy from the narrator Mike Dennis in exchange for an honest reviewThis short work comprises three early short stories by JD Salinger All three stories areeceptively simple a conversation between two young people at a party a visit by a brother to his sister a young man about to go to WWII saying goodbye to his wife and aunt yet to his sister a young man about to go to WWII saying goodbye to his wife and aunt yet contain much A lot of the magic in these stories is what is just hinted at what isn t saidThis is especially true in the third story Once a Week Won t Kill You in which a young man is about to go to war There is a moment there when he says goodbye to his aunt that is so poignant that it tugs at your heart a bit and you marvel at Salinger s sensitivity and skillThese stories are mostly Living with Lynching: African American Lynching Plays, Performance, and Citizenship, 1890-1930 dialogue and the way people speak is so real that you get instantly immersed in the tales The language is a bitated people are swell and grand and the social norms are old fashioned but that is part of the charmMike Dennis Witch-Hunt Narrative does a great job narrating these stories His male voices are spot on and add a lot to the characterization He needs to improve his female voices a bit but it was easy to tell the characters apart and everything ran smoothlyIn sum three gems for fans of Salinger I enjoyed them immensely Back to my main man Reading Salinger is like coming home The last story broke my heart for real. 1940 the story is notable for the backstory that is omitted a techniue that Hemingway used to great effect Four years later toward the end of Salinger’s war experience saw the publication of “Once A Week Won’t Kill You” again in Story magazine Ostensibly about a newly minted soldier trying to tell an aging aunt he is going off to war some may see the story as a metaphor for preparing one’s family for the possibility of wartimeeath Devault Graves Digital Editions a publisher that specializes in reprinting the finest in American period literature is proud to bring you this anthology by one of America’s most innovative and inspiring authors. ,

Three Early StoriesApparently a lot of people haven t gotten the word that the first official and legit JD Salinger book in 50 years has been released But here it is Salinger s first two published short stories from 1940 and another story from 1944 In my opinion Salinger showed his great talent from the first His clever use of ialogue infused with slang and leaving endings ambiguous with little backstory these are hallmarks of the singular Salinger style The book is small in size but is a classy product with nice graphic esign etc and 10 illustrations that add to the stories I think this is a must have addition to the Salinger canon 399 star average I came on here hoping that this bootleg looking book I got was fake had nothing to Alcohol Addiction Recovery do with Salinger Shit is trashYoung Folks 1510Go See Eddie 2510Once A Week Won t Kill You 2510I love Salinger to absolute pieces but good riddancePS Ion t know if there s any other version besides the one I have but shit is trash They leave every left page blank with the occasional rawing which are useless inaccurate literally the page before one of them it #says Edna female is taller than Billy or whatever his fucking name was male then the #Edna female is taller than Billy or whatever his fucking name was male then the ecides to fill the white space with a picture of a male a good half a head taller than the chick Yeesh on top of that have the nerve to count them in the page numberingThe back of the book says 1495 Thank God I found this in a library because I have a tendency of buying Salinger without knowing thing one about it I will buy his later works when they re released because there s close to no chance it will be worthless some stuff better than other stuff sure but none of it worthless ThisEarly Salinger indeed PSs longer than the review ftwPPS I single handedly brought the average score Beating the Odds - From shocking childhood abuse to the embrace of a loving family, one mans true story of courage and redemption down by 001 points I like that But I m looking at Nine Stories it s like 419She just got up and went back to herressing table to resume brushing her hair her thick red hairYou show me one single line in Nine Stories as fucked up as that I thought Hemingway was the runk I thought LSD was hardly even freakin invented when these stories were written Salinger has no excuse Not "one fucking reason for oing what he id Getting to know this "fucking reason for oing what he Roots and Blossoms did Getting to know this really well now and uite enjoying his short stories I love the way he writesialogue young hands holding lighted cigarettes and wet highball glasses JD Salinger is a household name in literature People who The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom don t even read books have read and loved at least his most known work and he has earned the reputation as a Essential Voice in American Literature Three Early Stories released surprisingly under the radar in mid 2014 is a legal anomaly that skirted the tightly clenched first of the Salinger estate to bring to print or accurately re print three stories Salinger published in magazines that had not been officially licensed to him This is the first official release of a Salinger story in nearly 50 years and gives the reader a glimpse at Salinger s early efforts The first two storiesate back from 1941 and the third from 1944 and offer a wonderful insight into his literary prowess It is interesting how in unpolished works the real gems of an authors signature abilities can shine so brightly and clearly standing out. A young and ambitious writer named Jerome David Salinger set his goals very high very early in his career He almost Shakespeare desperately wished to publish his early stories in The New Yorker magazine the pinnacle he felt of America’s literary world But such was not to be for several long years and the length of one long world war The New Yorker whose tastes in literary matters were and remain notoriously prim and fickle was not uite ready for this brash and over confident newcomer with the cynical worldview and his habit of slangyialogue But other magazines were uick to recognize a new talent a fresh voice at a time when the world verged on madness Story maga. From the rest almost as a caricature of the author s style These three stories aren t particularly stunning there is hardly a uote worth highlighting as the stories tend to stick to necessary BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) descriptions and never wander into the realm of philosophizing or making sharp bold statements about humanity yet manage to be uite engaging and thought provoking nonetheless yetisplay Salinger s acute observations of manner and speech that feel authentic and reveal a lifetime of insight into a character without ever having to enter into a Seers Stone (Hidden Alchemy discussion on it The first story my personal favorite of the threeetails a college "Party That Brings To Life All The "that brings to life all the angst awkwardness and peer interaction of such a scene that makes it feel so authentic in the readers mind and interchangeable with any college era party they had attended The interactions between a young girl on the prowl and a boy clearly attempting to evade her and watch the blonde object of everyone s affection evade her and watch the blonde object of everyone s affection flirted with by the all american boys he can never hope to be form a fabulous short fiction full of half hinted backstory and skillfully observed human mannerisms Salinger shows his mastery over Caveman Alien’s Riddle (Caveman Aliens, dialogue filling it with slang and italicizing key words that let the speech pattern fill the mind s ear like music It had been three years and she had never stopped talking to him in italics is a humorous line that connects the written word and the shrill tone of the characterUnfortunately these are not the Salinger stories we had all hoped for If rumor is true then those should still be forthcoming but until then or as a complimentary read to them Three Early Stories is a worthwhile and insightful look into theevelopment of JD Salinger as a writer There are no Gass or Caulfield members here but Salinger gives literary wings to human interaction that feels so authentic that it is no wonder he uickly blossomed into the famous author that he became Plus this collection features many wonderful illustrations mostly of people smoking cigarettes though the illustrator Teaching white South African literature in high school didn t pay close attention as one illustration features two people smoking side by side with a taller male when the text on the previous page makes special emphasis that the girl was taller than the boy And until there is of the inevitable Salinger releases we still are blessed with the exuisite parodiesone by Gordon Lish that had Salinger experts pondering for for a brief time These stories are simple and short cigarettes are smoked in the stories than you could smoke while reading them and while they are lacking in the A Wish Your Heart Makes depths one would expect they are still uite the satisfying snack355 A informative account of the legal voyage to bring this collection to print can be found in this article by Publisher s Weekly A few years back another Three Stories collection was leaked online containing the well worth the read story The Ocean Full of Bowling Balls click the link you know you want to at least skim it that was gifted to Princeton University under the solemn promise that they would not publish the story until 2060 Unfortunately female characters tend to get a bad reputation JD Salinger neverisappoints even with his tiny little short stories the man was a brilliant writerTher.
