“For the last six decades of his life, which ended on January 27th, at age 91, J.D. Salinger was almost as famous for his fanorexic avoidance of fame as for the epoch-shifting achievement that made him so famous he may have had no place left to go but nowhere. Before rock & roll had even gotten rolling or Hollywood had discovered that rebellion didn’t need a cause, just jeans and a white T-shirt, he single-handedly invented the great American teenager.” (suggested by Jer Fairall)
