J.D. Salinger, Author of ‘The Catcher in the Rye,’ Is Dead at 91

J. D. Salinger, who was thought at one time to be the most
important American writer to emerge since World War II but
who then turned his back on success and adulation, has died
in Cornish, N.H., where he lived in seclusion for more than
50 years, his son told The Associated Press. He was 91.

Mr. Salinger’s literary reputation rests on a slender but
enormously influential body of published work: the novel “The
Catcher in the Rye,” the collection “Nine Stories” and two
compilations, each with two long stories about the fictional
Glass family: “Franny and Zooey” and “Raise High the Roof
Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction.”
