2. J.D. Salinger – the Catcher in the Rye

But everyone knows about J.D. Salinger, yes? I still wonder what else he might have written – but although there are rumors that he left behind more than enough material, I hope none it ever gets released. I don't know, as a fellow writer, I can understand why he never really wanted to publish much again. Although his short stories are phenomenal and his novella, Franny and Zooey, is a good read, nothing quite stacks up to The Catcher in the Rye.
