dont know either chiron

The author's intention was to show a different perspective of the world. Salinger's depiction of the world in this novel is purposely cynical, almost sarcastic. None-the-less, Holden's world is a place that most of us haven't seen...... Salinger gives us a peek.

Okay, thanks for the tip!
