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.
