Oh, J.D.

It's a big year for Salinger.  There's a new documentary and a new oral biography coming, but those are still months away.

Here are some Salinger goodies from my library:

Salinger's Catcher in the Rye: Clamor vs. Criticism  (D. C. Heath & Co., 1963)

Studies in J. D. Salinger  edited by Marvin Laser and Norman Fruman (The Odyssey Press, 1963)

Unauthorized Salinger collection (1974?)
Years ago, when I ran a bookstore, a customer who traded regularly brought in some Salinger books.  Tucked inside the books were these vintage Salinger clippings:

The New York Times Book Review (September 17th, 1961)
Salinger in Time (September 15, 1961)
Salinger in The Atlantic (August, 1961)
