We’ve all heard about J.D. Salinger somehow, somewhere in our lives (mainly on our school’s must-reading lists).  So, thanks, Mr. Salinger for influencing us.

Interestingly enough, we came about this little story and hook to India.  His last published book took quite a while to publish (34 years) and Sundeep Dougal covered and exposed this news back in 1997:

“The legendary and enigmatic J.D. Salinger, author of the cult Catcher in the Rye is publishing a book after 34 years. An Indian caught the low-key event on the Internet and broke the news” (OutlookIndia.com)
