RIP JD Salinger 1919-2000
Author JD Salinger dies at age 91
LATEST: Reclusive US author JD Salinger, who wrote the American post-war literary classic The Catcher in the Rye, has died of natural causes aged 91.
What a sad, sad goodbye to one of the unique voices of the late 20th century who encapsulated all the loathing for the late 20th century so brilliantly. Salinger dying today and Zinn yesterday, it is a dreadful week for literature and human rights
