J.D. Salinger, Franny & Zooey. Salinger died two years ago today. (via doubledaybooks)
J.D. Salinger has always been a magnificent influence of my own writing. More so from Franny and Zooey and Nine Stories than Catcher, with such an untouchable voice for character and a constant push of limits. It is funny how I have always related to male writers more than female, the grittiness and straight shooting detail. Without Salinger’s influence in my life I wouldn’t be the kind of writer I am today.
