Day Thirty-Nine: "Pretty Mouth and Green My Eyes" by J.D. Salinger


In an interesting story that revolves around a telephone conversation between two grown men, the reader sees what pain a miscommunication can lead to and yet what pain a miscommunication can sometimes spare others from. With crisp dialogue and a voice that is always his own, JD Salinger shows how vulnerable a man can be when the prospect of losing his lover is presented to him.

It seems that for the author and his characters, there is really never a resolution.
