"A lot of authors seem frozen in time, stuck forever at the age they were when they first entered the public’s consciousness. That was even truer of J. D. Salinger than most — because he stopped publishing after 1965, because he fiercely guarded his privacy, because he remained so closely identified with the perpetual adolescent Holden Caulfield and the arrested adolescent Seymour Glass — and so the news of Salinger's death today was almost less shocking than the fact that he was 91 years old when he died."

(read the rest of the article here)

i wonder if i'll be frozen in time. and if so, i wonder at what age that will be. 

hopefully after my 21st birthday, to be completely honest. but not too far after.

Rest in peace, Salinger.
