J.D. Salinger, the author of ""The Catcher in the Rye"", was one of the most reclusive writers of the 20th century. Salinger continues to maintain his silence, but Holden Caulfield, Franny and Zooey, and Seymour Glass - the unforgettable characters of his novel and short stories - continue to speak to generations of readers and writers. This volume contains nearly 80 personal letters addressed to Salinger from well-known writers, editors, critics, journalists, and other luminaries, as well as from students, teachers, and readers around the world, some of whom have just discovered Salinger for the first time. Their voices testify to the lasting impressions Salinger's ideas and emotions have made on so many diverse lives. Contributors include Marvin Bell, Frederick Busch, Stephen Collins, Nicholas Delbanco, Warren French, Herbert Gold, W.P. Kinsella, Molly McQuade, Stewart O'Nan, Robert O'Connor, Ellis Paul, Molly Peacock, Sanford Pinsker, George Plimpton, Gerald Rosen, Sid Salinger, David Shields, Joseph Skibell, Melanie Rae Thon, Alma Luz Villanueva, Katharine Weber, and many others.
