A number of Salinger's works profile the Glass family. They include the 1953 collection of short stories, Nine Stories (1953), some of which feature the Glasses. The story "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" chronicles Seymour's suicide, while "Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut" reveals Walt's death overseas. Both of those short stories were among the first three by Salinger published in The New Yorker in 1948. In addition, "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters" and "Seymour: An Introduction" (1963), both parts of which also originally appeared as short stories in The New Yorker, provide a prequel to Franny and Zooey. In addition, much similarity exists between the four main characters in the Glass family stories and those from Salinger's hugely successful novel about Holden Caulfield and his family, The Catcher in the Rye (1951; see separate entry).
