(Content Note: in this episode we discuss the topic of abuse as it relates to this part of the book.)
We're back, ya phonies, with another slice of our take on this definitely-not-dated-but-actually-classic literature. This week, we're watching Holden deal with a pimp, a taxi driver, at least two overprivileged wankers, two nuns, an old flame and some ducks. And Dave even finds something to like about the book. What do you think? Over-rated teen angst? Deathless brilliance? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweet us @SharkLiverOil.
It's time for a new book and Shark Liver Oil is keeping it classical but cycling forward a couple of hundred years from Jane Austen - to bring you JD Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye! This week we're discussing chapters 1-12. We answer important questions like: does Holden Caulfield have ADHD? Just when is the right time to sell off your typewriter? Did people really use words like "phoney" and "crumby" instead of proper swears in the 50s? And will Dave find anything in this book that he likes? Welcome to the only podcast that has the brass balls to find a comparison between The Catcher and the Rye and Watchmen. Welcome to Shark Liver Oil..
