J.D. Salinger has died. Given his age of 91, this may not come as a total surprise. But it is still sad that the man who has written one, if not the one, of the most influental books ever has left us. And not only was it and is it still influental - it is also, or rather above all, a fantastic read. I guess I don't have to mention the name here, do I? So all I can say is: Farewell, Mr Salinger. You had it. And you knew how to put it into meaningful words.
