If a body catch a body comin' through the rye

There are very few storytellers who can stop you dead in your tracks, make you put the book down and gaze into the space in front of you with wide-eyed wonder and let loose your best Keanu-Reeves-WHOA. JD Salinger was one of those storytellers.

The news of his death isn't that old, but I'm sure others will write far more touching tributes than I ever could. Instead, I think I'll just go read some Bananafish.

Seriously. You were there when I read Bananafish for the first time. I really did just put the book down, my jaw hanging open, and look at you like I'd just been slapped in the face. It was amazing.

I like "Bananafish," but I'm really more of an "Esme" girl.
