Next up in our series of mini-author theme reads is JD Salinger. Perfect if you need a little breather from our year long author read. Here we will discuss his background, influences, lifestyle, etc. to try and understand the man behind the literary works. How exciting!
We will be reading this mini-author from May to August at which point we will switch to Kazuo Ishiguro.
"Reclusive author J.D. Salinger has emerged, at least in the pages of court documents, to try to stop a novel that presents Holden Caulfield, the disaffected teen hero of his classic "The Catcher in the Rye," as an old man."
Read the rest of the article here.
yep heard about that. Holden Caulfield runs away from retirement home. Sounds like a winner ;)
By the way, when is this Salinger reading supposed to start?
It has already started actually and lasts through August. So if you would like to read a Salinger book please go ahead! :)
I've read them all (*fan™*) - I'm just looking forward to the discussions ;)
