J. D. Salinger (1919-2010)



What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.

-J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Just heard this, too. And also discovered you are on Nin Andrews blog list. Julie did an independent study about Salinger with me while we were dating! He's been with us all these years. When I first arrived at Hope, Dirk Jellema said to me, "Ridl! It's your and my job to separate the phonies from the riff raff."
