I still remember my first reading of A Catcher in the Rye". As a book lover, it saddens me so when one of our beloved authors die. I just finished reading Elizabeth Gaskell's biography of Charlotte Bronte. Salinger will live in our memory as the Brontes and Austen and others have. All I can say is well done sir, well done.
