He published his only novel more than fifty years ago. He has hardly been seen or heard from since 1965. Most writers fitting such a description are long forgotten, but if the novel is The Catcher in the Rye and the writer is J. D. Salinger . . . well, he’s the stuff of legends, the most famously reclusive writer of the twentieth century. If you could write to him, what would you say?

Salinger continues to maintain his silence, but Holden Caulfield, Franny and Zooey, and Seymour Glass—the unforgettable characters of his novel and short stories—continue to speak to generations of readers and writers. Letters to Salinger includes more than 150 personal letters addressed to Salinger from well-known writers, editors, critics, journalists, and other luminaries, as well as from students, teachers, and readers around the world, some of whom have just discovered Salinger for the first time. Their voices testify to the lasting impressions Salinger’s ideas and emotions have made on so many diverse lives.

Contributors include Marvin Bell, Frederick Busch, Stephen Collins, Nicholas Delbanco, Warren French, Herbert Gold, W. P. Kinsella, Molly McQuade, Stewart O’Nan, Robert O’Connor, Ellis Paul, Molly Peacock, Sanford Pinsker, George Plimpton, Gerald Rosen, Sid Salinger, David Shields, Joseph Skibell, Melanie Rae Thon, Alma Luz Villanueva, Katharine Weber, and many others

From the Back Cover:

"We are not writing these letters to you. Indeed, we are merely writing to ourselves or to the part of ourselves that once had true literary aspirations, had honor, had good-hearted and honest artistic intentions, and was not jaded."—Adrian C. Louis

"You made the right decision. I’ve sometimes wished that I’d followed your example, although I’d have missed meeting hundreds of wonderful people."—Tom Robbins

Book Description University of Wisconsin Press, 2002. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: J.D. Salinger's continued silence strengthens the enigma of his life and fuels a growing appetite for answers to the many questions about his fiction and persona. Letters to J.D. Salinger provides a unique opportunity for the many frustrated writers, editors, critics, journalists, scholars and other luminaries who have longed to address the author and pose specific questions about his literary choices and craft. These imaginary letters offer fresh reflections of Salinger's work. Some consider the way his work touched their own; others reflect on how he influenced society and craft of fiction; still others offer a fresh perspective on Salinger's life. Taken together Letters to J.D. Salinger both provides a new forum for articulate and thoughful people who long wished to have an opportunity to speak with the reclusive and reticent author and facilitates a fresh and open dialogue and exchange of ideas on Salinger's contribution to modern American life and letters.
