Book Description
J D Salinger hasn`t published a word of fiction since 1965, and his silence casts a shadow over With Love and Squalor, a collection featuring 14 contemporary writers riffing on the works of the famously reclusive author. Unlike several less-than-flattering accounts of Salinger`s life published in recent years, this book is more about the writing than the writer. John McNally spends some time with The Catcher in the Rye`s memorable minor characters in "The Boy That Had Created the Disturbance," while in "An Unexamined Life," Benjamin Anastas is inspired to re-read Salinger after being branded as Salingeresque in the jacket blurbs of his own first novel. In "The Salinger Weather," co-editor Thomas Beller confronts a Salinger-reading stranger on the subway and experiences a "random city bonding moment." A real standout, though, is Aimee Bender`s "Holden Schmolden." She wonderfully captures that moment of first discovering Catcher. Yes, Salinger invites possessiveness, in the best way.
