What Theo did not worry about was the impromptu visit to the art museum, where an explosion killer Theo's mother and many . . .
It's no surprise when Holden Caulfield flunks out of yet another school. Instead of going straight home to inform his parents, Holden spends a few whirlwind days around New York City calling up old friends, drinking in bars (illegally, of course), and crashing in sleazy places. Rather than face his parents, he chooses loneliness and misery, and . . .
