'The author writes: Franny came out in The New Yorker in 1955, and was swiftly followed, in 1957, by Zooey.  Both stories are early, critical entries in a narrative series I'm doing about a family of settlers in twentieth-century New york, the Glasses.  It is a long-term project, patently an ambitious one, and there is a real-enough danger, I suppose, that sooner or later I'll bog down, perhaps disappear entirely, in my own methods, locutions, and mannerisms.  On the whole, though, I'm very hopeful.  I love working on these Glass stories, I've been waiting for them most of my life, and I think I have fairly decent, monomaniacal plans to finish them with due care and all-available skill.'
