O, Salinger, hath god forsaken you?

THIS is a great little tidbit from that venerable institution the New York Times. Does anyone still care about Salinger? This is a telling sentence:

“Mr. Salinger’s disappearing act has succeeded so well, in fact, that it may be hard for readers who aren’t middle-aged to appreciate what a sensation he once caused.”

Salingers Smirk
Salinger's Smirk

I respect how well written the books are, but do they still speak the same as they once did? But just look at that smirk. It’s like he knew one day he was going to piss everyone off.

Congrats to you, Mr.  Salinger.
