|Plot Summary of Chilly Scenes of Winter|
A modern Catcher in the Rye tale of an alienated, underpaid youth struggling with family (i.e., a mother who spends much of her depressed days in a bathtub and a semipathetic step-father who makes corny but well-meaning attempts to salvage family relations), love (i.e., the longing, paranoia, obsession and pain hauntingly familiar to anyone who has experienced a realtionship in their twenties) and life (i.e., subtle details and hilarious truths).
