Hi, folks! Here's the promised text of Jerome David SALINGER's A Perfect Day for Banana Fish. It is a part of a collection of nine stories. My other favorite short story in this volume is For Esme with Love and Squalor.
The text is in PDF format, readible with Acrobat reader. If you don't have Acrobat Reader you may download it from HERE.
After reading this story, remember my questions:
1. Who SEES this? Or, in other words: through whose eyes do we see the events?
2. Who TALKS? Whose is the voice speaking?
3. Does this voice know MORE or LESS than the (any of) characters? More or less than Muriel or Seymour?
4. What do you think about Seymour? What would be the possible HYPOTHESES regarding the end of the story? (Come up with at least two hypotheses!).
