Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction Mass market paperbound - 1991

by J. D. Salinger


From the publisher

The last book-length work of fiction by J. D. Salinger published in his lifetime collects two novellas about one of the liveliest, funniest, most fully realized families in all fiction (New York Times).

He was a great many things to a great many people while he lived, and virtually all things to his brothers and sisters in our somewhat outsized family.
