“Salinger”

Tomorrow is Independence Day…

….and who says “American values” better than Holden Caulfield and JD Salinger?! #amiright?

It’s no secret that I live and breathe for JD Salinger. Like so many other writers, The Catcher in the Rye inspired me to write my own story; not for anyone else, but for myself.

I’d be lying if I said i wasn’t #thirsty for a “new” Salinger book. I re-read Catcher once a year, and I’ve read Nine Stories a million times, and Franny and Zooey and Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction have been sitting on my shelf waiting for a new Salinger-composed companion for too long now.

So when I saw the trailer for the new documentary, Salinger, I nearly #died.

Hopefully it will explore Salinger’s demons in detail and try to explain his reclusive behavior and maybe, just maybe, tell us what literary treasures he’s secretly been writing…

DOES THAT NOT SEEM INCREDIBLY AWESOME?

ARE YOU DYING RIGHT NOW?

BECAUSE I AM.

It reportedly hits theaters on September 6th.

EIGHT DAYS BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY!

I NEED TO GET A RED HUNTING HAT FOR THE PREMIERE. I may even procure a prostitute named Sunny for this occasion.

Happy Fourth, erryone! I’ll be back on Friday with more new content! In the meantime, let’s all salivate over the trailer for Salinger and maybe catch up on some of my favorite posts that you might have missed:
