Catcher in the Rye author, JD Salinger, has died. I read the book a age 15, and completely related to Holden’s teen angst while trying to make sense of the world. I still use the code “Stradlater” for a person who is a secret slob. RIP, JD, and thank you for the book that introduced me to literature. Hope there are no phonies in your heaven.
