Morreu Salinger

Foi ontem, mas eu acabei de saber....

Morreu Salinger com 91 anos de idade. Este ano, justamente, eu tinha me proposto reler The Catcher in the Rye e Nine Stories, já estão separados ali no canto da estante...

Nota do NYT:

J. D. Salinger, literary recluse, dies at 91

Published: January 28, 2010

J. D. Salinger, who was thought at one time to be the most important American writer to emerge since World War II but who then turned his back on success and adulation, becoming the Garbo of letters, famous for not wanting to be famous, died Wednesday at his home in Cornish, N.H., where he had lived in seclusion for more than 50 years. He was 91.

Mr. Salinger’s literary representative, Harold Ober Associates, announced the death, saying it was of natural causes. “Despite having broken his hip in May,” the agency said, “his health had been excellent until a rather sudden decline after the new year. He was not in any pain before or at the time of his death.”
