Acerca de


"Raise High The Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction" is a single volume featuring two novellas by J. D. Salinger, which were previously published in The New Yorker. Anthologized together, they were the third bestselling novel in the United States in 1963 according to Publishers Weekly. Like many of the other Glass family stories, "Raise High The Roof Beam, Carpenters" is narrated by Buddy Glass, the second of the Glass brothers. It describes Buddy's visit on Army leave (during World War II, in 1942) to attend the wedding of his brother Seymour to Muriel and tells of the events that follow the wedding's non-occurrence. The events that occur in this story set the stage for Seymour's suicide in 1948. "Seymour: An Introduction" represents an attempt by Buddy Glass to introduce the reader to his brother Seymour, who had committed suicide in 1948. Buddy reminisces from his secluded home. This stream of consciousness narrative, like others concerning the Glass family, touches upon Zen Buddhism, haiku, and the Hindu philosophy of Vedanta. Einstein Books' edition of "Raise High The Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction" contains supplementary texts: · "This Sandwich Has No Mayonnaise", a short story by J. D. Salinger. · "Go See Eddie", a short story by J. D. Salinger. · A few selected quotes of J. D. Salinger.
