The Catcher in the Rye home assignment

 

Critic David D. Galloway said, wherever Holden turns, his craving for truth seems to be frustrated by the phoniness of the world. Analyze Holden’s use of the word “phony”. What does the word mean in the context of the book, and does Holden offer any alternative to phoniness? Is Holden himself guilty of being a phony? How does Salinger want readers to judge ideas about phoniness?
