Jump to: navigation, search

"The Hang of It" is a short story by J. D. Salinger, first published in the July 12, 1941 issue of Collier's Magazine. It is a commercial tale of a soldier who just can't seem to get "The Hang of It". The positive ending to the story was fitting for the country's upcoming involvement in World War II and popular with the magazines of the time. It was reprinted in the 1942 and 1943 editions of the Kit Book for Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines by Consolidated Book Publishers, Inc.
