RIP JD Salinger

JD Salinger, one of America’s great writers, died today at the age of 91. The New Yorker has made Salinger’s short stories available online and I can’t think of a more perfect day for bananafish. Letters of Note has an interesting piece of correspondence in which Salinger explains why Catcher and the Rye and his protagonist Holden Caulfield should never grace the silver screen. Here’s to honoring his wishes.

Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
