    And those are actual books? Not just essays or short stories he did or
    something like that? I was told that Catcher In The Rye was the only novel

    By Samuel Beckett. I really enjoyed that play.

    You`re right. Technically, it is the only _novel_ he wrote (unless as some
    people suspect there is a vast, unpublished body of work.) He wrote those
    three additional _books_ though. Franny and Zooey is really two related
    novellas which is not technically a novel if one is splitting hairs.

    Ah okay, so *that*`s the deal. So what is Raise the High Roof Beam exactly?

    It`s another set of novellas following the Glass family around. It differs
    a bit from his other work in that the family members are sort of
    "over-achievers" rather than the chronic haplessness of in _Catcher_.
