When i was thirteen years old i found this book that everyone was talking about in st. john`s library........ this kid slowly having a breakdown......cuss words in the book..............people not getting him..............not really getting other people or the world.............. i have an original 1st edition hardback copy in my literary collection. this book turned me on to the beauty of the written word.......i`ve been hooked ever since.
Salinger has been hiding most of his life from the "outer" world.......he had a handful of brillant books to his credit and i treasure them all. "Catcher was written in 1951 and his last article was in 1965. his last interveiw was in 1980. that sounds like a big FUCK YOU folks. Nine Stories, Franny and Zooey, Raise High the Roofbeam, Carpenters and Seymour: and Introduction: read these other books.
