Hats Off To J.D. Salinger

Famously reclusive, famously sought after…famous for the works of the Glass family and Holden Caulfield…and inspiring an assassin.

Don’t recognize HC? His is a character and story that launched a ship of iterations: Rebel Without A Cause and The Breakfast Club come to mind. Haven’t seen them? Get thee to your Netflix account. Haven’t read The Catcher In The Rye or Franny and Zooey? Skip hence to one of Columbia’s libraries or your local bookstore.

While you’re at it, check out some of the Salinger’s contemporaries, the Beat writers. You may find yourself braying with the best of them when HOWL opens in theatres.

But for now read…and remember when you, too, were “standing on the edge of a crazy cliff.” Anyone there to catch you?
