Salinger s famously unrepublished Glass family novella An excellent account of this great publishing disaster recounted by the publisher can be found here It has a tendency to suddenly reappear on then disappear from the internet I myself got a copy in the most delightful black market fashion Having struck up a conversation with a customer about Salinger who had recently died and who I was rather publicly mourning with a pleasantly profitable front counter display we rolled around to the subject of this story and the customer s voice dropped his manner turning clandestine He admitted that he had a copy typed out for him by some kind soul from the original New Yorker publication would I like to read it Would I It was less than a week later slipped to me under plain manilla covers and I took it home feeling like some of the original readers of Lady Chatterley s Lover or of you know PornAnyway that was all uite fun But what of the story itselfSeriously I need help with this I love the Glass family stories so much as this bit of gushing illustrates but making this tale fit with the rest of the canon makes my head hurt My anonymous benefactor felt similarly when we met up again beneath a picturesue bridge or in a shadowy parking garage perhaps to discuss the work The story takes the form of a letter home from camp by a seven year old Seymour Glass the letter however comes to us introduced by Seymour s brother Buddy and like much of what we know of Seymour one must wonder how much of it is authentic and how much shaped by Buddy s hand In this particular case one is inclined to believe that the whole thing is fabricated as the letter seems impossibly and even creepily precocious for someone of Seymour s purported age But if that is the case what is Buddy trying to convey what ghost is he trying to exorcise by portraying his brother and his family in this way Without a doubt Hapworth 16 1924 is by far the most mysterious and bizarre of the often mysterious and bizarre Glass family tales and it casts an odd light on the rest of the canon Data Data Data she cried I can t make bricks without clay Which I suppose is my way of saying it s been almost a year already Where s this vast store of Salinger s unpublished work that was supposed to appear following his death Stop tormenting me from beyond the grave JD It s just petty

I feel deeply moved by reading this book and even though the main concern of everyone in here is either can or cannot the young prodigious Seymour Glass be the author of this touching intimate spiritual letter I don t consider this matter to be relevant at all If Salinger considered the matter of credibility important he would easily attributed this letter to an older alter ego of Seymour but regardless of everything he didn t This too has a meaning It testifies our ability to transcend the innate inclination to judge things based solely on the dictates of so called teluric reason Secondly the situation itself may drop a glimpse of light on the future suicide attempted by the author of this intricate letter showing that the impossible sense of fulness that he achieved can be unbearable or liberating Thirdly it s hardly even a bit important to think about Seymour as a 7 years old boy this being accentuated by him repetitively making reference to his age as something that must impose some restrictions on him but it evidently and ironically doesn t Therefore don t perceive the author of this letter as being embodied Seymour is merely a person he is a ghost This letter seems to give a lot of speculations towards the way he is still haunting the Glass family after his death as he did when being alive I may approve the fact that this review doesn t make a lot of sense But this wasn t the purpose of it anyway
