Salinger | David Shields

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jerome David Salinger, “Jerry” to his friends: writer, soldier, fickle lover, famous recluse. Through extensive research, interviews, and letters, Shields and Salerno plummet deep into Salinger‘s life, analyzing his works, and speculating on posthumous publication. Like many artists, he was an incredibly flawed human. This absolutely consumed me.

(It‘s quite a chunkster, so I switched between print and audio).

Cinfhen I dig the photo🤩I know what you mean about a book consuming you….I just finished listening to this one on audio - RIVETING 2y
britt_brooke @Cinfhen That one consumed me as well! 💔 2y

I love finding stuff in used books. I bought this years ago and finally decided to crack it open. I sure hope things worked out for Adrian and Michael, but I curse whichever one of them dog-eared the shit out of this book. 😂 And at the bottom of the pages. First time I‘ve seen that. Anyway …. enjoying the read so far!

MMFinck That‘s so great! 2y
slategreyskies What a great find! I love letters like this! I‘ve never found anything that good in a used book before! 2y
mrp27 I think I saw it on HBO but there is a Salinger documentary based on this book. I thought it was well done. 2y

britt_brooke @slategreyskies It‘s my best find yet! Usually it‘s an old book mark which I also love, but this is my first time finding a note. It‘s such a personal thing, but also oddly comforting. 2y
britt_brooke @MMFinck It made me smile! K wonder where they both are now 8 years later. 2y
britt_brooke @mrp27 I‘ll have to look for it when I‘m finished - thanks! The book is fantastic so far. I‘m switching between print and audio and can‘t put it down. 💚 2y

My Christmas books. I bought Nine Stories with proceeds from my podcast, as well as the ‘Salem‘s Lot Blu-Ray (presents for myself!). I also received two lovely blank books. Fulfilling my goals of owning and reading all works by all three of these authors. Not shown: plethora of Kindle books also earned and gifted. 🥰 #flanneryoconnor #stephenking #jdsalinger #bucketlist #christmaspresents #bookhaul #shortstories
