by: Carlotta M.

Holden Caulfield from "The Catcher in the Rye" and Igby Slocumb from "Igby Goes down" shares the idea of phoniness. Both characters are phonies. They create false relationships by using sex so they won't feel alone. They claim to be surrounded by phonies and express their dislike to them.
The Idea of Phoniness.

Quote #5
"One of the reasons why I left Elkton Hills was because I was surrounded by phonies." (Salinger, 13)

Quote #3
"Uh huh. Well, how 'bout it? Y'innarested? Five bucks a throw. Fifteen bucks the whole night." He looked at his wrist watch. "Till noon. Five bucks a throw, fifteen bucks till noon."

"Okay," I said. It was against my principles and all, but I was feeling so depressed I didn't even think. That's the whole trouble. When you're feeling very depressed, you can't even think." (Salinger, 91)
Quote #4
Igby: Can we go back to your mom's apartment and have sex?

Sookie: No. You think that'll make you feel better? It won't. It'll make you feel really empty and sad. You're better off masturbating.
