Thanks, Jessica fan

Jessica Zafra is responsible for my JD Salinger fascination and I’m grateful. She has been mentioning and quoting from The Catcher in the Rye from her old but still amusingly snarky Twisted series, enough to make me wonder just what the big deal is. In a recent post, she greets the very dead JD a happy birthday, and some Twisted reader of hers provided a link to what I consider to be an invaluable source of Salinger’s unpublished and presumably nowhere-to-be-found work, which I will print from the office printer page by page ‘til I’m caught.

  1. The only thing I know of that Catcher book is that it was mentioned gratuitously in some, I dunno, movie with a serial killer on it. Hmmm…

    Happy New Year!


  2. Hahaha. Guilty ako dun ah. I printed all 273 pages of Ian McEwan’s Atonement using my previous office’s printer. Bit by bit. But I used scratch anyway, so it kinda makes up for the ink. And I tuned it to the “least dark” printing as well. Hahaha.


  3. happy new year patrick! 😀

    ako naman i’m starting to wonder what’s the fuss with Catcher in the Rye and all JD works… haven’t read a single one. you, Zafra, and my brother… hmmm. maybe i should start reading. 🙂
