Phoneys and the dash man: the hypnotic voice of J. D. Salinger

Goodall, Jane (2010) Phoneys and the dash man: the hypnotic voice of J. D. Salinger. Australian Book Review (319). pp. 34-36. ISSN 0155-2864

Abstract

Salinger called himself 'a dash man', quintessentially a short story writer, but I'm not so sure about that. The Catcher in the Rye is an overblown short story, but the Glass family saga is something else. The dash is a breathless narrative momentum that keeps finding sources of
renewal.
