Taboo or not?
J.D. Salinger died today at the age of 91. He was a reclusive writer, and was best known for "Catcher In The Rye".
I never got what all the fuss was about that novel. I read it in my teen years. I read it because everyone said it was controversial and band from Canadian schools. Or at least I was given that impression. We all know that if something is made 'taboo' that any self respecting has to get their hands on it... right?!
So, I'm asking - did you ever read it? Did you get it? What was all the hullabaloo about?
(Cool. I just used the word hullabaloo. I don't think I've ever written it before).
