J.D. Salinger (1919-2010)

I was saddened to hear of J.D. Salinger’s passing this morning.

In the middle of a writer’s crisis last year, when I was losing sleep, facing excessive despair amidst a second-act freeze in my novel, the creative marrow being sucked from my bones, I stayed up three nights rereading “The Catcher in the Rye” and found my inspiration again.

Thank you, Mr. Salinger. I, for one, will miss your presence here on earth.
