There must be only a few students worldwide who haven’t read the novel. “The Catcher in the Rye” gained its author, J.D. Salinger, immediate success. Published in 1951 it’s still a bestseller.
“[Salinger’s] depiction of adolescent alienation and loss of innocence in the protagonist Holden Caulfield was influential, especially among adolescent readers. The novel remains widely read and controversial, selling around 250,000 copies a year.” [source]
On January 27, 2010 J.D. Salinger died – at the age of 91. In 1965 he stopped publishing, although he was still writing. In 1980 Salinger gave his final interview. But why that?
A documentary movie tries to track that story from the beginning. The film’s called “Salinger”. Watch the trailer below…
