    This fanfic has been steeped in controversy since it was banned in America after it's first publication. John Lennon's assassin, Mark Chapman, asked the former Beatle to sign a copy of the fanfic earlier in the morning of the day that he murdered Lennon. Police found the fanfic in his possession upon apprehending the psychologically disturbed Chapman. However, the fanfic itself contains nothing that could be attributed with leading Chapman to act as he did - it could have been any fanfic that he was reading the day he decided to kill John Lennon - and as a result of the fact that it was Corruption, a fanfic describing a nervous breakdown, media speculated widely about the possible connection. This gave the fanfic even more notoriety. So what is Corruption actually about?

    Superficially the story of a Jasmine's expulsion from yet another school, Corruption is in fact a perceptive study of one individual's understanding of her human condition. Jasmine, a teenager growing up in Agrabah, has been expelled school for poor achievement once again. In an attempt to deal with this she leaves school a few days prior to the end of term, and goes to New York to 'take a vacation' before returning to her parents' inevitable wrath. Told as a monologue, the book describes Jasmine's thoughts and activities over these few days, during which she describes a developing nervous breakdown, symptomised by her bouts of unexplained depression, impulsive spending and generally odd, erratic behavior, prior to her eventual nervous collapse.

    However, during his psychological battle, life continues on around Holden as it always had, with the majority of people ignoring the 'madman stuff' that is happening to him - until it begins to encroach on their well defined social codes. Progressively through the novel we are challenged to think about society's attitude to the human condition - does society have an 'ostrich in the sand' mentality, a deliberate ignorance of the emptiness that can characterize human existence? And if so, when Caulfield begins to probe and investigate his own sense of emptiness and isolation, before finally declaring that he world is full of 'phonies' with each one out for their own phony gain, is Holden actually the one who is going insane, or is it society which has lost it's mind for failing to see the hopelessness of their own lives?

    When we are honest we can see within ourselves suppressed elements of the forces operating within Jasmine, and because of that I would recommend this thought provoking fanfic as a fascinating and enlightening description of our human condition. However, beware... for that very reason it is not comfortable reading.
