goodbye j.d. salinger (1919-2010)


As everyone has probably heard by now writer J.D. Salinger has just passed away. Like many others I hold The Catcher in the Rye on a pedestal as it served as a unique and identifiable friend during my adolescent unglory years, and I am so thankful for that gift.

One of my favorite blogs, Words and Eggs, has a great post featuring several versions of the classic novel's cover.

Thanks for the mention - I love that Italian cover. I do *not* love that J.D. has departed. :(
