salinger

The girls read the Salinger stories and I think generally loved them but were hard put to say why. It's an important reading lesson to discover that understanding and enjoyment are not the same. That Kafka is the greater for his mystery rather than the less. I'm not certain whether it's important to know why we feel deep emotions, but our species wants an explanation.
