JD Salinger

January 28, 2010

JD Salinger died today.  I see two copies of Catcher in the Rye in the SEL collection and Meg will be looking at our holdings of all of his titles and ordering more as needed.  If you’re looking for something especially Salinger-esque to recommend to patrons waiting for Catcher, Someday This Pain Will be Useful to You by Peter Cameron is a YA novel that is very reminiscent of Catcher in the Rye.

    “Punkzilla” also reminded me of “Catcher in the Rye”, though MUCH grittier. Think older teens. “Punkzilla” was a Printz Honor book this year, as you know.
