Synopsis:

In The Spring Of 1972, Joyce Maynard, a freshman at Yale, published a cover story in The New York Times Magazine about life as a young person in the 'sixties. Among the many letters of praise, offers for writing assignments, and requests for interviews was a one-page letter from the fatuously reclusive author, J. D. Salinger. At Home in the World is the story of a girl who loved and lived with J.D. Salinger, and the woman she became. A crucial turning point in Joyce Maynard's life occurred when her own daughter turned eighteen -- the age Maynard was when Salinger first approached her. Breaking a twenty-five-year silence, Joyce Maynard addresses her relationship with Salinger for the first time, as well as the complicated, troubled and yet creative nature of her youth and family. She vividly describes the details of the times and her life with the finesse of a natural storyteller. Courageously written by a woman determined to allow her life to unfold with authenticity, At Home in the World is a testament to the resiliency of the spirit and the honesty of an unwavering eye.
