J.D. Salinger RIP

As the The Gawker confirms, this is Salinger's Cornish, NH house. It's further away from the river and farther north than I'd thought, which is why visitors could be so easily misled trying to pay homage to the literary sage of our time. He's fascinating in many ways, one being despite strange and yet, curmudgeonly ways, he managed to always get a 19-year-old wife no matter what decade he advanced to. That's easier to grasp than the last of his fiction, although all of it has an affected air. Big culture bearing books often do. They last though. I for one hope there's more of them left in his safe as many papers have speculated, although the Boston Globe Editorial board claimed to know. That's interesting. We'll wait and see.
