“Ever since reading Catcher in the Rye, I have identified with Holden Caulfield. I always believed that while he was working one side of the street, I was working the other.” ~Art Buchwald, in his autobiography Leaving Home: A Memoir, ©1993
That’s interesting. I would never have thought to compare Holden Caulfield with Art Buchwald.
Cather in the Rye is one of those books that seems to leave a mark on everyone who reads it. Somehow J.D. Salinger created an outsider that everyone identifies with.
