Death of J.D. Salinger
Coincidentally, just as we are about to start studying The Catcher in the Rye as part of our Transition Year course, comes news of the death of J.D. Salinger. The media is full of material about him now, but we draw attention to a substantial feature by Eileen Battersby in today's Irish Times here, with additional comments by Colm Tóibín, Niall MacMonagle, Joseph O'Connor and others.
