J.D. Salinger

Strange. Salinger had vanished from the public eye for so many years, his death almost didn’t resonate; it was like we’d lost him years ago and gotten over it. Almost.

For those of you who have been feeling the void (at whatever level), check this out: the New Yorker’s Adam Gopnik discussing Salinger with Charlie Rose:



P.S. Also, if you haven’t experienced Salinger in awhile, do yourself a favor and read “Teddy” (the last short in Nine Stories). If you have a little more time, pick up Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters, which was always underrated.

P.P.S. Big Love officially sucks now. I may not finish the season. Extremely disappointing.
