Delving into the deeper implications of loss of innocence in JD Salinger's immortal work, the present book focuses on problems faced by teenagers. The study purports to give voice to those teenagers who feel loneliness and loss of direction because their life undergoes a change from childhood to adulthood, from innocence to experience. Originally published in the United States of America, the book has steadily climbed up the ranks, gaining both critical acclaim and global audience. The present edition is a print volume of the same book, brought forth for the Indian academy.
