9780141049243: Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters. Seymour: An Introduction

First published in "The New Yorker" in the 1950s, "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: an Introduction" are two novellas narrated by Buddy Glass, a character often said to be a portrait of Salinger himself. In the first, Buddy has taken leave from the army during World War II to attend the wedding of the eldest Glass brother, Seymour, and an atmosphere of portentous suspense sets the scene for the tragedy that will follow. In the second, Buddy reminisces about Seymour and the novella unfolds into a deep and far-reaching exploration of a complex and sad character which displays all the tenderness and subtlety which distinguish the best of Salinger's writing.

A haunting and deeply personal portrait of family tragedy from the much-loved author of The Catcher in the Rye Buddy Glass is the second-eldest son in the eccentric and enchanting Glass family. He is on leave from the army during World War II, attending the wedding of his eldest brother, Seymour. But the wedding is not a happy one: it is overcast by a sense of strange suspense.
