The Catcher In The Rye 1: Anyone Fancy a Pint?

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..
