It was an interesting piece of Art - not really a good written or timely Book - but a nice Piece of Art about a young Man who was at the brim of throwing his live away in the cold and bitter times after WW2. Nice One!
This is amazing! Beautiful representation of the scene. I don't know if this was intentional or not, but partly what I like most about the picture is that the rain makes it blurry so the characters are hard to see, leaving room for imagination, and the blurry-ness also makes it less image-y, when you know that Holden hates the movies and Salinger hates how image-reliant the world is. Apart from that, it's very skillfully drawn.
