Samenvatting

J.D. Salinger died in January 2010, almost 50 years after the publication of his last book. All the same, his face stared down from television screens and newspaper front pages across the globe, proving that interest in Salinger had never waned. As the author of 'The Catcher in the Rye', the seminal work on youth disaffection, Salinger became embedded in the American psyche. The book has sold more than 65 million copies and readers still identify with its antihero, the arch Holden Caulfield.
Kenneth Slawenski is a world-renowned expert on Salinger. He runs the definitive Salinger website 'Dead Caulfields' and has devoted seven years to researching and writing J.D. SALINGER: A LIFE RAISED HIGH. Until now, little has been known about Salinger - the writer and the enigma - but Slawenski provides a detailed and passionate account of the famously reclusive author who last spoke to the press nearly 30 years ago.
In addition to conducting numerous interviews, Slawenski toured libraries for letters, birth certificates, marriage licences and work records. The result is a comprehensive biography looking not only at Salinger's work in forensic detail, but also his family background and personal life.
