Posted in News by msdisdain on January 28, 2010

The world has lost yet another mind ahead of its time:

R.I.P. Jerome David Salinger
January 1, 1919 – January 27, 2010

Notable Works by J.D. Salinger:
The Cather in the Rye (1951)

On my list of top favorite reads of all time; I’ve read Catcher in the Rye almost ten times and mostly when I lived in Paris, felt completely existentially lost and needed a metro read.

Nine Stories (1953)
Franny & Zooey (1961)
Raise High the Roof Beam, the Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction (1963)
