J. D. Salinger's Gone

It seems like Salinger's been gone so long already.  According to he gave his last interview in 1980. The man just wanted to be left alone.  Too bad he wrote the iconic coming-of-age novel for the Baby Boomers.  Hard to let him go - like a Beatles reunion, revelations from J.D. Salinger will never be forthcoming.  Sidebar:  According to Contemporary Authors Online as accessed through Biography Resource Center (whew)  J. D. Salinger "worked as an entertainer on Swedish liner M.S. Kungsholm in the Caribbean, 1941" (italics mine).  Knock me over with a feather.  J.D. Salinger was 91 years old when he died Thursday January 28th.
