On Wednesday January 27 2010, 20th century novelist, JD Salinger died at the age of 91. He was the author of one of the most well-known books about teens, The Catcher in the Rye, which was written over 50 years ago. I read the book quite a while ago, but I still remember dear ol' Holden Caulfield and his hunting cap, Phoebe, and the phonies. An eye-opener for teen angst, to say the least.
Salinger's contribution and influence in literature is well known and widespread, and I can surely say he will be missed..
