RARA-AVIS: Studs Lonigan / The Catcher in the Rye

From: Bludis Jack ( buildsnburns@yahoo.com)
Date: 20 Aug 2002

An observation and a question:

I related to THE CATCHER IN THE RYE as "of my time," whatever that was and "Lonigan" as merely interesting--the first volume anyhow.

To the best of my recollection there was a lot of depression (as well as depressing) stuff in STUDS LONIGAN.

I now see people bringing up STUDS LONIGAN and I have been thinking about it: Was STUDS LONIGAN the coming-of-age novel for an older generation?

I am not trying to call "Catcher" hardboiled or noir, just thinking about the comparison.
