Yes, Holden Should Read These Books.
Lisman, C. David
English Journal, v78 n4 p14-18 Apr 1989
Counters Donald Barr's assertion that works such as J. D. Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye" and William Golding's "Lord of the Flies" are unfit reading material for adolescents ("Should Holden Caufield Read These Books?""New York Times Book Review," May 4, 1986). Shows how these works address adolescents' moral condition. (MM)
