A great collection if you appreciate Salinger's writing. It's his typical style - just telling you what's going on, giving you just enough detail to visually see it. One story, in particular, sticks with me. "A Good Day for Bananafish" - at first, I took it for what it was; then, I realized there was a much, much deeper meaning to his words. And that caused me to re-evaluate the other eight stories. Recommended if you enjoyed _Catcher in the Rye_.

Each story better than the last, until you reach the last, best story. Definitely a worthwhile read.

A classic. These nine stories involve members of the Glass family who are the subject of most of Salinger's fiction (other than The Catcher in the Rye).

Two of the stories included in this collection ("A Perfect Day for Banannafish" and "For Esme with Love and Squalor" are among my very favorite pieces fiction. There is something so poignant about these two stories that touched me deeply. There is no author that writes mental illness with more authenticity or expresses internal conflict, anguish, and unhappiness better.

Since the publication of The Catcher in the Rye in 1951, the works of J.D. Salinger have been acclaimed for their humor, intensity, and their lack of phoniness. A collection of short fiction, Nine Stories contains works with those qualities that make Salinger such a well-loved author.
