J.D Salinger Passes Away

Call someone a phony today in his honor. The New York Times piece on J.D Salinger’s life and death is well-done, and this is my favorite part, a quote of Salinger’s when he spoke to The Times in 1974:

“There is a marvelous peace in not publishing. It’s peaceful. Still. Publishing is a terrible invasion of my privacy. I like to write. I love to write. But I write just for myself and my own pleasure.”
