The reclusive, brilliant author J.D. Salinger has died.
Salinger will be immortalized for creating the character Holden Caulfield in his 1951 novel, The Catcher in the Rye. He also wrote the collection Nine Stories and Franny and Zooey. He famously avoided publicity, but his death has spread over Twitter like wildfire.
Here’s more from an AP report: “Salinger died of natural causes at his home on Wednesday, the author’s son said in a statement from Salinger’s literary representative. He had lived for decades in self-imposed isolation in the small, remote house in Cornish, N.H.”
