Couldn't Remember Where I Heard It...... Just a quick note

but last week, after hearing a male English professor waxing wistfully about how much Catcher in the Rye meant to his development, another professor, a woman, said that her first reading of Holden Caulfield was like being on a date with a boy who couldn't stop talking about himself.

Which might be the most insightful single thing ever said about the book.
