J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher In The Rye was one of those pivotal books for me when I was growing up. I remember reading it and thinking Wow, this book is written like how I would have written a book. It was raw and wordy but in a form unlike the rest of the polished books we were reading in school. It spoke from the heart of a kid roaming the city who was just going through a crisis and having an adventure at the same time. To this day, it is still one of the few books I can recall actually reading more than once (more than twice, actually) and it has never gotten old.
The trailer above is about the author of this book, J.D. Salinger and his mysterious life of recluse. I can’t wait to watch this!
