Short Stories Thru the Decades
For Esme - With Love and Squalor by J.D. Salinger (1950)
Some critics consider this story Salinger's finest piece of short fiction. The story opens in 1950, immediately after the narrator has received an invitation to Esme's wedding. He and his "breathtakingly levelheaded" wife have decided that he cannot go, so instead, he writes these "few revealing notes on the bride as I knew her almost six years ago."
