'Catcher In The Rye' Author J.D. Salinger Dies At 91 - January 28th 2010, 08:47 PM

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...186193&ps=cprs

The famously reclusive author J.D. Salinger has died at his New Hampshire home, his literary representative said in a statement. He was 91 years old.
Jerome David Salinger retreated to a New Hampshire farmhouse in 1953, a few years after he published the high-school classic The Catcher in the Rye. And there he stayed, for the next 50-plus years, scowling at photographers who dared snap his picture.



Rest in peace

I saw that he died on NY Times, but I couldn't figure out who he was even though I read the book like 50 times. Haha. Let him rest in peace.

I feel bad because I assumed he was already dead.

But it's a shame that someone who gave such a positive influence to the world of literature has died. But he had a long life, so lucky him.

I heard about this off of someone's status on Facebook. I loved his book, Catcher in the Rye. Rest in peace.

R.I.P.!

It's a shame he didn't get much more published. I really enjoyed Catcher in the Rye, and would have loved to read more by him.

I'm with Jack xD.

Haven't read the Catcher in the rye, but it's on my list. RIP.

Wow, this is really shocking to me...
He was a great author, and great authors hold a special place in my heart. R.I.P.
