“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”

- The Catcher In The Rye, J.D. Salinger

I can imagine in the nights to follow I'll dream of perusing his secret vault, heart pounding while thumbing back and forth through 'the unpublished'. And I'll not be the least bit startled by his ghost because that's been his existence for decades, an apparition. Chased away into the isolated snowy New Hampshire woods retracing the steps I came, out of breath, I'll look back one last time and see the red hat way in the distance. Then all of the sudden, turning again to run in silence on the powdered snow, Holden would be running next to me. Misfits, we'd keep going until we left this world.

Are you saying you stalked J.D. Salinger?
