So handsome!

Keeping the flame of hope burning that he has at least one more manuscript to now be published.

Rest in peace my literary genius.

Hey! I had no idea about this until I saw your post!! I saw an article online where the literary world is "holding its breath," as Mr. Salinger apparently was a PROLIFIC writer over all these years. No one knows how much MORE there is...can you even imagine?!?

It's always sad when an icon passes. A blessing that he lived a good long life though.

I wonder - in light of the statement he made in the New York Times in 1974, "There is a marvelous peace in not publishing ... I write just for myself and my own pleasure." (by the way I LOVE, LOVE THAT STATEMENT!!! I need to remember that), do you think there will be unpublished works of his, published at some point? From the looks of his statement, I'm not sure he would have ever wanted that.
