Weekly Obsession: Salinger Style

Some people are eye-rollingly familiar with Holden Caufield, the reluctant protagonist in J.D. Salinger’s 1951 novel Catcher in the Rye. But Holden is just the tip of the iceberg. You see, according to the prevailing lit crit, Salinger didn’t write Catcher — Buddy Glass did. And Buddy and the other 6 Glass children — child prodigies turned disenchanted misanthropes — populate the remainder of Salinger’s fictional works. And if the Glass family can inspire an entire film, they can certainly also inform a certain household or wardrobe.

Love these! I admit, with some embarrassment, that despite years of literature education … I’ve never read Catcher in the Rye! Now I must. 🙂
