Franny & Zooey by J. D. Salinger

 A novel in two intertwining stories, Franny & Zooey brilliantly captures the emotional strains and ruptures of entering adulthood. 

'Lane Coutell, in a Burberry raincoat that apparently had a wool liner buttoned into it, was one of the six or seven boys out on the open platform. Or rather, he was and he wasn’t one of them.'
