JD Salinger Dead at 91


So long, and thanks for “The Catcher in the Rye.”

Crazy,… I hadn’t thought about Salinger in years,… the guy’s work really shaped the way I wrote. When I had the English Dept Chair in college single me out and ask me to work as a writing tutor, I was shocked. Asking about my writing, all I could say was that I loved Salinger… it always sounded like someone was really speaking to you as you read, and I just tried to do that… R.I.P.
