Finding Forrester

We saw “Finding Forrester” this past weekend. Afterward, I wanted to find out what author’s life, if any, the movie was derived from.

It was most likely J.D. Salinger, author of “The Catcher In the Rye”.

[ via who2.com ] Always a private man, Salinger became increasingly reclusive throughout the 1950s and eventually stopped making public appearances or statements of any kind. He refuses requests for interviews and has not published since 1965, though he reportedly continues to write at his remote home in Cornish, New Hampshire.

I’ve never read “Catcher In the Rye”. I know, I know… what kind of school did I go to. I think I might put it on my TO READ list. The movie was pretty good by the way.
