J. D. Salinger

"Salinger transformed the short story in America. He gave it a kind of internal music it hadn’t had. And it’s possible to make the case that no writer sounded more original." Sam Tanenhaus, editor of The New York Times Book Review

Few authors achieve the social and literary influence of J. D. Salinger, or write a character with so much timeless appeal; it's hard not to come across a little bit of Holden Caulfield every day.

Come to the library and check out a Salinger book today.
