Franny tells the story of Franny Glass, Zooey’s sister, undergraduate at a small liberal arts college. The story takes place in an unnamed college town during Franny’s weekend visit to her boyfriend Lane. Disenchanted with the selfishness and inauthenticity she perceives all around her, she aims to escape it through spiritual means.
“Zooey” is set shortly after “Franny” in the Glass family apartment in New York City’s Upper East Side.
Franny and Zooey is a book by American author J. D. Salinger.
