J. D. Salinger RIP

"January 28, 2010 ~ J.D. Salinger dies at 91

It is with feelings of sadness and loss that Dead Caulfields shares the news of the death of author J.D. Salinger, who passed away at his home in Cornish, New Hampshire on Wednesday, January 27. According to his son, Matthew, Salinger died of natural causes and in keeping with his wishes, no public memorial is planned. However, I would like to offer a suggestion to all who seek to honor the legendary writer at this time: Read. Explore, whether for the first time or twenty, The Catcher in the Rye, read Nine Stories, Franny and Zooey, Raise High and Seymour. Re-experience Salinger's works in tribute to the author who is so deeply embedded within them. Salinger the man may be gone from us now - and the world is an emptier place for that - but he will always live within the pages he created, and through his art remain as vital today and tomorrow as when he strolled the boulevards of New York and the woods of New Hampshire."
