Author J.D. Salinger Has Died
CatcherInTheRye1.jpgFrom The Literary Lions Desk...

Legendary author and hall of fame recluse J.D. Salinger has passed away. He was 91-years-old.

Countless numbers of you have read Mr. Salinger's masterpiece "The Catcher in the Rye." Hopefully none of you took the story out of context and killed a Beatle after reading it.

After the notoriety Salinger received after "The Catcher in the Rye," he just couldn't handle it. He said once that "he was in this world but not of it." Salinger just wanted to be left alone,so he moved into an isolated home in Cornish, New Hampshire. That is where the author died.

For a long time, there has been rumors that every few years, Salinger would make a surprise appearance at his local bank with a large manuscript-sized package and would place them in safety deposit boxes. Who knows what was in those packages. Theoretically, and possibly, we may be given more novels that were planned to be released posthumously. Maybe. The theory goes that if Salinger did release another book, the world's media would swarm his house looking for interviews, so he planned for them to be released after he died. Maybe. We may be given other books from a master, now that he's gone.

So long Mr. Salinger. And thank you...
