The red hunting hat by Molluu The red hunting hat by Molluu
"Then what she did -- it damn near killed me -- she reached in my coat pocket and took out my red hunting hat and put it on my head.
"'Don't you want it?' I said.
"'You can wear it a while.'"

Chapter 25 of The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger.
I love this book. Go read it.


Holden, Phoebe, and text belong to Mr. Salinger.

I love this interpretation of this extract! The novel is fantastic and I think this work captures Holden's fragile state of mind and his utter affection and love for Phoebe!it is a beautiful visual for a novel that doesn't have or won't ever have a cinematic interpretation! Amazing.

The mix between the art and the realistic background is great. Also the color and black and white. And the blur helps, too. It's a great book. Read it in a day. I decided to use it for a book report in High School. (Got an A+) ;)
Holden is so weird, but lovable. Phoebe was great. The whole book had no major plot, but the musings of this kid were so relatable. It's great.
