JD Salinger, 1919-2010

Famous as much for his decision to turn his back on fame as for his seminal novel about teen angst and alienation Catcher In The Rye, reclusive author JD Salinger has died aged 91. His output was slender but his reach was long.

Agreed. I mean how many people were affected on a deeply personal level when first reading THE CATCHER IN THE RYE? I also love the stories about the Glass family. Amazing stuff. He will be missed and hopefully some of his unpublished material will finally see the light of day.
