A Perfect Day for Bananafish

JD Salinger made me want to be a writer.

JD Salinger made me want to be a reader.

JD Salinger, with his eccentric characters and frank observations on life, influenced American Literature and all of the stories I've written (and obviously the stories written by many of my peers). His Nine Stories collection has appeared in several of my books--I think it is the only book mentioned by name in any of my stories.

Thanks, Salinger, for your interesting quirks and simply beautiful stories. May you rest in peace and comfort and the privacy you so desire.
