DON'T EVER TELL
ANYBODY
ANYTHING

"If you do, you start missing
everybody".

Those are the last words in my favourite
book ever, Catcher In The Rye.

American novelist JD Salinger, author of
the classic 20th Century tale,
has died aged 91.

The story of teenage angst, first published in
1951, has become one of the most influential
novels of the modern era but
Salinger
shunned the fame it brought and
became a recluse for
the rest of his life.


My well thumbed copy is from 1988 and
weirdly enough I'd just been thinking
about re-reading it...
