Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters; Seymour by J. D. Salinger

A haunting and deeply personal portrait of family tragedy from the much-loved author of The Catcher in the Rye.

'I sat up in bed. ‘What are you going to do?’ I said. ‘I thought maybe I’d read something to her,’ Seymour said, and took down a book. ‘She’s ten months old, for God’s sake,’ I said. ‘I know,’ Seymour said. ‘They have ears. They can hear.’
