This book is a compilation of two Salinger’s novella which was originally published in The New Yorker in 1955 and 1959. It’s two parts that follows the Glass family narratives. Raise High is narrated by Buddy Glass, the second of the Glass brothers, describing Buddy’s visit on Army leave (during World War II, in 1942) to attend the wedding of his brother Seymour to Muriel and tells of the aftermath when Seymour fails to show.
While Seymour: An Introduction is Buddy’s attempt to introduce the reader to his brother Seymour, who had committed suicide in 1948. The story is told in a stream of consciousness narrative as Buddy reminisces in his secluded home. Like others concerning the Glass family, touches upon Zen Buddhism, haiku, and the Hindu philosophy of Vedanta.
