I am still reading "Franny and Zooey" as I am in sort of a reading slump.  Even though I have already "teased" from this book, I will do so again and maybe get myself out of my slump.  So, here goes, from page 123.

"Mrs. Glass, who did some of her most inspired, most perpendicular thinking on the threshold of linen closets, had bedded down her youngest child on the couch between pink percale sheets, and covered her with a pale-blue cashmere afghan.  Franny now lay sleeping on her left side, facing into the back oof the couch and the wall, her chin just grazing one of the several toss pillows all around her."

I am not sure how compelling this teaser is but I think I am wondering why Franny is there -- I am pretty sure it isn't good.  Maybe I am un-slumping.
