Happy Birthday, J.D. Salinger

Posted January 1st, 2013 by

SalingerJ.D. Salinger was born January 1, 1919. He died 91 years later on January 27, 2010. Catcher in the Rye was his only novel; published in 1951. A few years ago I pulled out Catcher and began typing it word-for-word into my computer. I wanted to know what it felt like to write something as influential and powerful as Salinger had. It felt good.
