    Default JD Salinger Pronounced Dead

    http://www.seattlepi.com/artandlife/...ml?source=mypi

    A true Literary LEGEND. RIP

    EDIT: Please forgive my stupid choice of ANNOUNCED in the thread name. I don't know if mods could change it to PRONOUNCED or just JD Salinger Passes Away at the age of 91

    Sad, indeed. I was very fond of his work.

    RIP JD Salinger

    wow...this was unexpected. Sallinger was a fantastic writer...and the inspiration for the character that James Earl Jones played in Field of Dreams.

    RIP
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Orwell did pretty well with his "clocks at thirteen" and Hemingway usually came through, especially with his "we did not go there any more" bit, but for my money, this is the best opening paragraph to a book ever...

    "If you really want to hear about it the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born. What my lousy childhood was like. And how my parents were occupied and all before they had me. And all that David Copperfield kind of crap. But I don't feel like going into it, if you really want to know the truth".

    Enough said.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    I'll have to check out Nine Stories. The only thing I've ever read of his is Catcher in the Rye.
