Author J.D. Salinger, 91, died yesterday. He wrote four books, but he is most well known for “The Catcher in the Rye” and its main character, Holden Caulfield. It’s been many years since I have read “Catcher,” and I don’t feel particularly qualified to write about Salinger’s career or his mysterious life as a recluse.
But I came across this clip, “J.D. Salinger, Reclusive Literary Icon, Dies at 91,” from PBS NewsHour and thought it was worth sharing.
I think it’s time for me to re-visit this American classic.
