Most importantly though, goodbye Mr. Salinger. You brought me much joy and insight.
29 January 2010
This past Wednesday J. D. Salinger died of natural causes at age 90. While I mourn the passing of this great writer, I have a selfish little secret to confess. I've always assumed that while in seclusion these last 50 years, he was still writing and just tucking it away "in the vault." I selfishly hope some of this material, if it exists, is posthumously published. I'm dying to see what he's been working on.
