    Sinopse

    In the J.D. Salinger benchmark 'A Perfect Day for Bananafish', Seymour Glass floats his beach mate Sybil on a raft and tells her about these creatures' tragic flaw. Though they seem normal, if one swims into a hole filled with bananas, it will overeat until it's too fat to escape. Meanwhile, Seymour's wife, Muriel, is back at their Florida hotel, assuring her mother not to worry - Seymour hasn't lost control. Mention of a book he sent her from Germany and several references to his psychiatrist lead the reader to believe that World War II has undone him.The war hangs over these wry stories of loss and occasionally unsuppressed rage. Salinger's children are fragile, odd, hypersmart, whereas his grownups (even the materially content) seem beaten down by circumstances - some neurasthenic, others (often female) deeply unsympathetic. The greatest piece in this disturbing book may be 'The Laughing Man', which starts out as a man's recollection of the pleasures of storytelling and ends with theintersection between adult need and childish innocence. The narrator remembers how, at nine, he and his fellow Comanches would be picked up each afternoon by the Chief -a Staten Island law student paid to keep them busy. At the end of each day, theChief winds them down with the saga of a hideously deformed, gentle, world-class criminal. With his stalwart companions, which include 'a glib timber wolf' and 'a lovable dwarf', the Laughing Man regularly crosses the Paris-China border in order to avoid capture by 'the internationally famous detective' Marcel Dufarge and his daughter, 'an exquisite girl, though something of a transvestite'. The masked hero's luck comes to an end on the same day that things go awry between the Chief and his girlfriend, hardly a coincidence.
