Jan. 1: J. D. Salinger, American writer


J. D. Salinger (1919-2010) American short story writer and novelist. The Catcher in the Rye is tackled in many a classroom; its success drove Salinger to become a recluse. All of his books are worth reading (I have!); after Catcher, start with Nine Stories; then Franny and Zooey; then Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction.
