Why Bananafish?

If I had to name a favorite author of mine it would undeniably be J.D. Salinger. While his most famous work is the omnipresent novel The Catcher in the Rye, it’s mostly his short stories that I’ve been reading again and again, in particular a series of stories spanned across several volumes about a fascinating family: the Glass family. The very first one of them (reprinted in Nine Stories) – which narrates the suicide of the oldest brother Seymour while on vacation in Florida with his wife – is called A Perfect Day for Bananafish. The whole related family plot starts from this very point, with countless flashbacks and prolepses through their eccentric lives. Bananafish also happens to be the start of my own new journey.
