The Catcher in the Rye was included on Time Magazine's 2005 list of the 100 best English-language novels written since 1923, and it was named by Modern Library and its readers as one of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. In 2003, it was listed at number 15 on the BBC's survey The Big Read. It is originally intended for adults but is often read by adolescents for its themes of angst, alienation, and as a critique on superficiality in society. Around one million copies are sold each year, with total sales of more than 65 million books. The novel's protagonist Holden Caulfield has become an icon for teenage rebellion. The novel also deals with complex issues of innocence, identity, belonging, loss, connection, sex, and depression.

《麦田里的守望者》为美国作家J.D.塞林格于1951年发表的长篇小说。这部有争议的作品原本是面向成年读者的,但迅速因其青春期焦虑和隔绝的主题而在青少年读者中流行。该书以主人公霍尔顿·考尔菲德第一人称口吻讲述自己被学校开除学籍后在纽约城游荡将近两昼夜,企图逃出虚伪的成人世界、去寻求纯洁与真理的经历与感受。该书出版之后,立刻引起巨大的轰动,受到读者——特别是青年人——的热烈的欢迎,被翻译为多国语版。小说每年大约有250,000本售出、总计为6500万本。时代杂志将《麦田里的守望者》列在“2005年度百大英语小说”榜上。
