Salinger ... well, he's the stuff of legends, the most famously reclusive writer of the twentieth century. If you could write to him, what would you say?" "Salinger continues to maintain his silence, but Holden Caulfield, Franny and Zooey, and Seymour Glass - the unforgettable characters of his novel and short stories - continue to speak to generations of readers and writers. Letters to J.D. Salinger includes more than eighty personal letters addressed to Salinger from well-known writers, editors, critics, journalists, and other luminaries, as well as from students, teachers, and readers around the world, some of whom have just discovered Salinger for the first time. Their voices testify to the lasting impression Salinger's ideas and emotions have made on so many diverse lives."--Jacket." ;
