RIP. Now he is safe from the phonies.

THIS makes me genuinely sad.

Catcher in the Rye helped me laugh at myself. We've lost a reclusive but great mind.

I was Holden when I was in high school.

Hah, same! I think we've talked about this a bit before! Still am a little like him as I think you are.

Still detest Stradlaters and all people who live by pretense, but the passing years have taught me that other Holdens might see me as a Stradlater. You can't be the protagonist in everybody's novel. Life requires villains.
