Franny and Zooey

Upon my finish of Aunt Dimity's Death, I decided to sandwich something different in between installments of the Dimity collection so I chose a short read by J.D. Salinger entitled Franny and Zooey.  This book has been on my shelves for a long time and when my cousin, MLHalldotcom wrote about Salinger a little while ago, I thought I should read it.  So, here is my teaser taken from page 11.

"Lacks what?"  Franny said.  She had had to clear her throat before speaking, it had been so long since she had said anything at all.  Lane hesitated.  "masculinity,"  he said.  "I heard you the first time."
