J.D. Salinger passed away yesterday, at the age of 91.
Perhaps best known for penning The Catcher in the Rye, still I was always more of a fan of Franny and Zooey and the Nine Stories series, although I enjoyed Caulfield, too.
There are certain Vonnegut books that I typically buy over and over, as I tend to loose copies in moves, or just like to collect different covers really, I also collect copies of Franny and Zooey. Do you ever do this? Starts by accident and then before you realize you have 5 copies of the same book. It’s only with these two authors that I really do this with though, perhaps because I hold such a strong attachment to them as I started reading them in my early teens and those things just stick with you.
Well Mr. Salinger, for your sake, I hope nobody brings you flowers.
