Holden Caulfield made his debut in The Catcher in the Rye and because of that particular work his name is now synonymous with "cynical adolescent." This book he tells the events he goes trhough in the couple of days of his sixteen-year-old life, days when he he's been expelled from prep school. The author of this novel, J.D. Salinger, tells that events in such slang that even today it still sounds edgy. It’s also the reason this novel is included in banned book lists.

The main protagonist and also the narrator is a sixteen-year old kid, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield. Through conditions that tend to rule out adult, secondhand description, he quits his prep school in Pennsylvania to embark into an underground existence in New York City for three days. The boy himself is at once too simple and too complex for us to make any final comment about him or his story. Perhaps the safest thing we can say about Holden is that he was born in the world not just strongly attracted to beauty but, almost, hopelessly impaled on it.

There are many voices in this novel: children's voices, adult voices, underground voices-but Holden's voice is the most eloquent of all. Transcending his own vernacular, yet remaining marvelously faithful to it, he issues a perfectly articulated cry of mixed pain and pleasure. However, like most lovers and clowns and poets of the higher orders, he keeps most of the pain to, and for, himself. The pleasure he gives away, or sets aside, with all his heart. It is there for the reader who can handle it to keep.
