  1. “People never notice anything.” —Holden Caulfield

  2. “All morons hate it when you call them a moron.”

  3. J.D. Salinger • Born January 1, 1919 • Raised in the Bronx, NY, young writer • Served in WWII, traumatic stress • Recluse, nothing published since 1965

  4. “I don't even know what I was running for - I guess I just felt like it.”

  5. “A Perfect Day for Bananafish” • Published 1948 in The New Yorker • Critically-acclaimed • Shell-shocked WWII veteran • Similar to Fitzgerald, Hemingway, other Modernists

  6. “It was that kind of a crazy afternoon, terrifically cold, and no sun out or anything, and you felt like you were disappearing every time you crossed a road.”

  7. The Catcher in the Rye • Published 1951 • Immediate success, more public attention—and scrutiny • For adults, but about teen angst, adolescent alienation, loss of innocence: modern consciousness • Widely read, but controversial

  8. “People always think something's all true.”
