The first letter I got from J. Salinger was very short. It was , and I had written to him with a proposal: I wanted my tiny publishing house, Orchises Press, to publish his novella Hapworth 16, And Salinger himself had improbably replied, saying that he would consider it. It takes the form of a digressive 26,word letter sent home from summer camp by the breathtakingly precocious 7-year-old Seymour Glass. The novella took up more than 50 pages of The New Yorker in the issue of June 19, ; I was 18 then, and I still have my copy.

Pages: Written the same month it was published, it is ranked today as one of the most famous short stories in the history of American literature. It has been described as a chilling tale of conformity gone mad. Response to the story was negative, surprising Jackson, Caleb Mann the local head editor at the local paper and The New Yorker. Readers canceled subscriptions and sent hate mail throughout the summer. The story was banned in the Union of South Africa.
Since then, it has been accepted as a classic American short story, subject to critical interpretations and media adaptations, and it has been taught in middle schools and high schools for decades since its publication. Details of contemporary small town American life are contrasted with an annual ritual known as the lottery.
In a small village of about residents, the locals are in an excited yet nervous mood on June Children gather stones as the adult townsfolk assemble for their annual event, that in the local tradition has been practiced to ensure a good harvest one character quotes an old proverb: Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon , though there are some rumors that nearby communities are talking of giving up the lottery.
In the first round of the lottery, the head of each family draws a small slip of paper from a black box; Bill Hutchinson gets the one slip with a black spot, meaning that his family has been chosen. In the next round, each Hutchinson family member draws a slip, and Bill s wife Tessie-who had arrived late-gets the marked slip. In keeping with tradition, each villager obtains a stone and begins to surround Tessie. The story ends as Tessie is stoned to death while she bemoans the unfairness of the situation.

The author's final of 13 appearances in the pages of The New Yorker, and also his last authorized published story. In our experience, this is the most difficult of the Salinger New Yorkers to obtain. From the opening paragraph, "Some comment in advance, as plain and bare as I can make it: My name, first, is Buddy Glass, and for a good many years of my life -- very possibly, all forty-six -- I have felt myself installed, elaborately wired, and, occasionally, plugged in, for the purpose of shining some light on the short, reticulated life and times of my late, eldest brother, Seymour Glass, who died, committed suicide, opted to discontinue living, back in , when he was thirty-one.

Hapworth 16, 1924: A Chatterbox Investigation
SOME comment in advance, as plain and bare as I can make it: My name, first, is Buddy Glass, and for a good many years of my life— very possibly, all forty-six—I have felt myself installed, elaborately wired, and, occasionally, plugged in, for the purpose of shedding some light on the short, reticulate life and times of my late, eldest brother, Seymour Glass, who died, committed suicide, opted to discontinue living, back in , when he was thirty-one. My mother, Bessie Glass, sent it up by registered mail. This is Friday. Last Wednesday night, over the phone, I happened to tell Bessie that I had been working for several months on a long short story about a particular party, a very consequential party, that she and Seymour and my father and I all went to one night in This last fact has some small but, I think, rather marvellous relevance to the letter at hand. No further comment, except to repeat that I mean to type up an exact copy of the letter, word for word, comma for comma.
