J.D. Salinger, RIP

J.D. Salinger, the reclusive author of Catcher in the Rye (published nearly 60 years ago) died today, aged 91.

Presumably, this opens the possibility that his classic book may one day be filmed because, up until his death, he remained steadfast in his opinion that ‘Catcher’ was unfilmable and that Holden Caulfield is unactable.
