J. D. Salinger (1919-2010)

I have to admit to not having read Salinger in decades. it was so important to me at one time I was afraid to reread Catcher. as a young writer I was under his spell when I wrote the short story "Accident" which I sent to the New Yorker . altho they didn't publish it I seem to recall I rec'd a personalizd rejection slip.
