"The Catcher in the Rye," and the other short stories of J.D. Salinger, are mostly - 75% - about people under the age of 21; and - 40% - about children and youngsters under the age of 12. Holden Caulfield's "anti-establishment" attitude - "don't trust anyone over the age of 25" - was way ahead of Jack Kerouac and the Beatniks, James Dean,  and the Hippies of the 1960's and the Vietnam era.
