How to Alienate Your Book Club

This is a tip straight from me to you. If you are reading JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye for your book club, don't read extensively from the pertinent sections of Existential philosophy. Reading about anxiety gets a few head nods. Explaining, as well as you can, nothingness sees side conversations start up. Mentioning how existentialism also explains Holden's continuing dissatisfaction with those around him...well, that was when it was nicely suggested we return to the pre-printed study guide questions.
