The Glass Family

Though Salinger is more famous for his novel Catcher in the Rye, many die-hard fans prefer the various short stories and novellas that comprise the Glass Family saga. The main focus of these stories is the inexpliable suicide of the oldest Glass sibling, Seymour. The stories begin in a straight-forward and coherent manner(more like the style of Catcher), but they slowly become more dense and complex, causing reviewers of Salinger's later works to dismiss them as inscrutable plotless messes.
