JD Salinger a murit ieri. In ultimii ani era cunoscut mai mult ca celebritate literara care s-a retras din lumea publica - un fel de Garbo literat aparand sporadic in ziare ca subiect al hartuirii jurnalistilor, al zvonurilor nefondate, in fotografii cu aspect vadit infuriat. Merita sa ne amintim de el chiar si numai pentru “The catcher in the rye” (De veghe in lanul de secara). A trait 91 de ani.

Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be."

- J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
