Salinger Related Everything.

+I am not a fan of Dave Eggers. What is the polar opposite of a fan? That is what I am. However, let it be known that I, Kimberly Southwick, an opposite-of-a-fan of Dave Eggers, enjoyed very much his short piece written for the New Yorker on the deaths of J.D. Salinger and Howard Zinn. --

+Stephen Colbert's "Salinger Watch" from August 2008. Needless to say, Salinger never appeared on the 'Colbert Report', however, the video is very funny. "Listen up, Salinger! No one stands me up!" And he calls him 'Jerome'. Must watch. --

+The Onion posted an Onion-esque blurb on the day of his death, which I found perfectly hilarious --

+Here is a website that contains much of the once-or-'under'-published work of Salinger, as well as the text of many of his work that *was* printed in book form, which I recommend you go buy immediately, because the cost of the mass market versions of his novels is very inexpensive, and now that he has died, there is a possibility of a raise in price. We're talking less than $8 each for four of the most eloquently-written published books of fiction in the twentieth century. But yeah, the stuff you won't find in the stores is collected on this website --

+Here is a news story which discusses the reticence of those involved in the Salinger Estate. There are no forthcoming new stories, says the report. Everyone who knows anything about the possibility of anything isn't saying anything. --

+My friend Ian Carlos led me to this one. It's a montage of all of the low-budget versions of Catcher in the Rye made, probably, mostly by phony film students at godamn universities. It's quite funny. --

+I hate this article. I think Jay McInerney can suck it. I take back everything nice I said about 'Bright Lights, Big City'. But yeah, the article is about people who didn't really like J.D. Salinger --

+This is a Huffington Post article on movies that were inspired by Salinger --
