Last night, I heard the sad news that author J. D. Salinger died, aged 91. Many of you will have studied his 1951 book, The Catcher in the Rye, at school. I’m sure the book will still be used in the curriculum for many years to come.
Here is a selection of obituaries and articles that have been published in the last few hours:
- JD Salinger: A guy you’d want to call up (but he wouldn’t take calls)
- Authors’ Tributes
- JD Salinger would not be caught in the public eye
