IN A PREVIOUS ERA, a popular young adult character was assured that “Life is a game,” to which he replied: “Game, my ass. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hot-shots are, then it’s a game, all right – I’ll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren’t any hot-shots, then what’s a game about it? Nothing. No game.” Given the chance, Katniss Everdeen, the sixteen year-old heroine of The Hunger Games, might have identified with Holden Caulfield’s thinking, though in a considerably more literal way.
Then get “The Real Holden Caulfield,” a short e-book published by Fiction Advocate.
