The Catcher In The Rye


The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days. The boy himself is at once too simple and too complex for us to make any final comment about him or his story. Perhaps the safest thing we can say about Holden is that he was born in the world not just strongly attracted to beauty but, almost, hopelessly impaled on it.

As part of the Oxford Exchange’s mission to celebrate the beauty of the physical book, we have created our own deluxe, leather bound collectible edition of J.D. Salinger's classic novel, The Catcher in the Rye. This edition has been designed by the Oxford Exchange to offer an authentic, heritage feel, and is the fourth book in the Oxford Exchange Library collection. Oxford Exchange Library editions bring luxurious books back into the home library.
