Jerome David Salinger has died at 91 years old, after 50 years almost in silence. Rumor has it that his home at Cornish, New Hampshire, is full of unpublished works. Let's hope they don't put it upside down. Salinger said something like that the important thing is not to publish, but to write.
It feels like Salinger wrote The Catcher in the Rye in a day, and that incredible feeling of ease inspires writing. Inspires the pursuit of voice. Not his voice. My voice. Your voice.
