J.D. Salinger died this week at the age of 91. How many times have you read Catcher in the Rye? How did it impact your life?
y'all know how much I dislike the QotD, but today it serves a purpose
among the avalanche of JDS obits, memories, remembrances, etc. I'll say this: I read "Catcher… , didn't relate to it at all, found Holden annoying and whiny. the Glass family stories are interesting.
yet I got to tip my hat to JDS – when he ran out of things to say, he shut up.
may all of us be that smart
