Catcher in the Rye also

posted by Jason Kottke   Aug 15, 2000

Catcher in the Rye also goes in the should-have-read-it-sooner pile. Holden Caulfield’s tell-it-like-it-is attitude is refreshing, even decades after the book was written, especially since the 1990s were the Decade of the Phoney. And I have no doubt that if Holden was reading this right now, he’d tell me to stop using so-many-hyphenated-together-words in my goddam sentences.
