J.D. Salinger

It’s been a couple weeks now since the author of the wildly popular book, Catcher in the Rye, passed away.  I am probably one of a small minority of people who consider themselves reasonably culturally literate but haven’t read this book.  With a three-day weekend dead ahead (thank you, President’s Day!), I think I may give it a shot.  I was reminded of Salinger when surfing at lunch and saw the following on NPR’s site.  Interesting stuff.

Damn, my lunch hour is expiring as we speak.  I’ll update later on whether or not I got to this book over the weekend…
