Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 161219589X, Paperback)

From the legendarily reclusive 20th century master of American literature comes an extraordinary collection of interviews.

Holden Caulfield might have one of the most recognizable voices in American literature, but, as readers, we've heard precious little from his legendary creator, J. D. Salinger.

J. D. Salinger: The Last Interview collects the rare, revealing, and essential public records of the elusive giant--from his very first interview with Book of the Month Club magazine, to his last (a deposition in his suit against his biographer Ian Hamilton), and the little-known conversations in between. It offers insights into Salinger's early days as a writer, (when he'd had only one story published), his attempts to kill a book of pirated stories, and the late "comeback" that he may or may not have even wanted.

Amusing, enlightening, and expertly selected, these documents reveal a man fiercely resistant to the spotlight, but powerless to escape its glare.

Edited and with an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning journailst David Streitfeld.
