The Catcher in the Rye [Cover Competition]

My cover was inspired by Allie's baseball glove and the motif throughout the entire novel. Holden's wish to be the catcher in the rye could be literally taken as being the 'catcher', in baseball, whereby he is honouring his late brother. The idea of a baseball glove in place of the tree also signifies Holden's view of the world, which is different from what others would call 'reality'.

"Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.”  

- Holden Caulfied, TCitR
